Homework Help: Car distance

  1. Sep 12, 2005 #1
    I would like to check something.
    A car leaves a city along a straight road and accelerates uniformly for 1.6 min until it reaches a speed of 120km/h. It then deccelerates uniformly until it comes to rest again after 1.6min
    what is the distance traveled by the car?

    I used the equ. x-xo=.5*a*t2+vo*t
    before I found the acceleration..
    I found 3.2 km

    Is that right?
