I have a few questions here... I hope you'll bare with me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)A certain car is capable of accelerating at a rate of +.60 m/s^2. How long does it take for his car to go from a speed of 55 mi/h to a speed of 60 mi/h?

can someone please explain to me the step by step way to solve something like this? I dont expect you to solve it for me.. but atleast help me with the formula or equations I need.

2)...if I have an equation such as...

(30m/s - 10m/s)/2.0s = 10m/s^2 (this equation came from the book example)how did the answer get to 10m/s^2 ? I forgot how to.. can someone please enlighten me?

3)...if I have 10m/s^2 and (30m/s -10m/s)only..as in

(30m/s - 10m/s)/?= 10m/s^2 how can I solve to find the 2.0s? Please help...

Thanks in advance...
