Homework Help: Why does acceleration change here...?

  1. May 18, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi everyone, this is probably simple but i don't understand why the acceleration in the question is 0.20 m/s2 but in the answer an acceleration of 0.020 m/s2 is used? Can someone please explain why it changes? Thank you!
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    It's likely a typo.

    For sure? I was thinking that lol but there are 3 parts to the question and they all use 0.020.

    Then the typo must have been in the problem statement.
