In April 1974, Steve Prefontaine completed a 10.0-km race in a time of 27 min, 43.6 s. Suppose “Pre” was at the 9.00-km mark at a time of 25.0 min even. If he accelerates for 60.0 s and maintains the increased speed for the duration of the race, calculate the acceleration that he had. Assume his instantaneous speed at the 9.00-km mark was the same as his overall average speed at that time. I kept getting very confused on this problem because there were too many unknowns. I don't know his final speed after acceleration, the distance covered during his acceleration, or the distance covered after he was done accelerating. I've tried solving by using a system of equations but i kept getting to many unknown variables which led me too not get any answers. The only thing i pretty much got is that his instantaneous speed at the 9 km mark would be 9000m/1500 s= 6m/s. But i cant use that to solve for acceleration since we don't know the distance traveled. Can anyone help?
