Q1: A car accelerates uniformly from rest to a

speed of 79.7 mi/h in 9.01 s.

Find the constant acceleration (expressed

in m/s2) of the car. Answer in units of m/s2.

Q2: Find the distance (expressed in m) that the

car travels during this time. Answer in units

of m.

2. Relevant equations

Acceleration

Distance

3. The attempt at a solution

Q1:

79.7mi/h = 35.6m/s

35.6/9.01 = 3.95m/s2

Q2:

3.95/2 * 9.01 = 17.79m
