can I just multiply 3.47 m/s/s by 5 seconds to get my speed after that amount of time? for example:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

. A European sports car dealer claims that his car will accelerate

at a constant rate from rest

to a speed of 100 km/hr (28 m/s) in 8.00 s. What is the speed

after the first 5.00 s of

acceleration?

a.44.4 m/s b. 34.7 m/s c. 28.7 m/s d. 17.4 m/s e. 8.7

m/s

First I find the acceleration to be 3.47 m/s^2 now can i just times by 5? If so i get 17.4 m/s Is this correct?
