1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A vehicle accelerates from 2 m/s to 26 m/s in 12 seconds. Determine the acceleration. Also find the average velocity and the distance travelled. 2. Relevant equations Average velocity = Total distance/ time taken 3. The attempt at a solution Acceleration = (26-2)/12 = 2m/s2 Average velocity = ??? Ok the answer for average velocity is = (26+2)/2 = 12. Total distance = 14*12 =168m. My question is how is the average velocity computed like this?? WHy 26+2???? And why divided by 2? Isn't the total time taken 12 seconds? SHouldn't it be divided by 12? ANy help would be Appreciated.
