1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The world record for the 100m dash is 9.58s, and for the 60m dash it is 6.38s. Assume a sprinter accelerates at a constant rate up to a maximum velocity that is maintained for the rest of the race, no matter how long it is. a) Find the acceleration (both sprinters will have the same acceleration) b) Find the duration of this acceleration c) Find the maximum velocity achieved by this acceleration d) The world record for the 200m dash is 19.19s, while for the 1000m run it is 131.96s. Are these times consistent with the assumptions made? 2. Relevant equations Kinematic equations 3. The attempt at a solution This question is really stumping me. I know that I have to link the two values given to find the acceleration in part a, and thus everything else asked for, but i'm not sure how to go about doing this. My guess was to first find the each of the accelerations for the values given and then average them, but this does not seem to be the right way to solve for it. If anyone can point me in the right direction here it would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
