8. If the displacement of a car was 150 km [E] and the velocity was 50.0 km/h [E], what was(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the time of travel?

A. 100 h [E]

B. 3.0 h

C. 100 h

D. 3.0 h [E]

(I divided 150 by 50)

9. The airport is 60.0 km away and you have 1.00 h to get there. If your speed for the first

40.0 minutes is 48.0 km/h, how fast must you travel in the remaining 20 minutes to get

there within the time?

A. 48.0 km/h

B. 84.0 km/h

C. 90.0 km/h

D. 180 km/h

( for this I converted the times to hours then I found the distance it travelled first then I subtracted it from the whole distance it has to travel then I divided the amount it still had to travel by the remaining time)

10. If the velocity of a car is 16 m/s and it travels for a time of 6.0 s, what is the

displacement? Express the displacement correctly.

A. 96 m

B. 10 m

C. 96 m

D. 10 m/s

(for this I multiplied the velocity by the time it travelled and inferred that it doesnt include direction)

11. A racoon travels from point A to point B in 11 s. If the racoon was displaced 55 m ,

what was its velocity? Express the number correctly.

A. 5.0 m/s

B. 5.0 m/s

C. 44 m/s

D. 66 m/s

(for this I divided the displacement by the time)

12. A car driver speeds up from 5.00 m/s [E] to 15.0 m/s [E] in 4.00 s. Determine the carâ€™s

acceleration.

A. 40.0 m/s2 [E]

B. 40.0 m/s [E]

C. 2.50 m/s2 [E]

D. 2.50 m/s [E]

(for this I subtracted the final velocity from the initial velocity and the divided this value from the time)

13. An 1800 kg Volkswagen travelling at 60.0 km/h impacts into a concrete barrier and stops

in 0.420 s. The magnitude of the collision force on the automobile is

A. 2.57 x 10^{5}N

B. 7.14 x 10^{4}N

C. 1.26 x 10^{4}N

D. 1.08 x 10^{5}N

(for this I first converted the speed to m/s then divided this by the time to get acceleration then I multiplied this by 1800 Kg is this the correct way to do it do i calculate the acceleration by dividing the given velocityby the time or is there another way to do it)
