1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An automobile is traveling west. Can it have a velocity toward the west and at the same time have an acceleration toward the east? Under what circumstances. 3. The attempt at a solution I wrote "Yes, the car can be moving west and speeding up with a positive velocity (assuming west is the positive x-axis) and at the same time having a negative acceleration towards the east." Does my response answer the question? I am having a hard time with this. Can anyone assist me or guide me in the right direction? Thanks beforehand.
