I was given this as a practice problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 1,000 kg car accelerates from rest to 25.0 m/s in 7.50 s. What is the Average power?

So far, I know that P= FD/t F=ma

m=1000kg

initial velocity = 0

final velocity = 25.0 m/s

t = 7.50 s

how do I find the acceleration? thx
