Suppose a car starts from rest. The car accelerates straight

down the road and and att=30 seconds, attains a speed of

v=30 km/h. Determine the average acceleration of the car.

2. Relevant equations

a=v_{f}-v_{i}/t_{f}-t_{i}

3. The attempt at a solution

so the answer is 1000m / hr /s^{2}....

now the textbook wants you to convert it fully into m/s^{2}. what would i do next
