    Acceleration (a)= 5.71m/s^{2}

    Time= 15.46 seconds

    Explanation:

    A.) Time

    1.) Through derivation, we will be able to determine that the formula for time is:

    t=\frac{d}{v}

    2.) Substitute the values:

    \frac{1365m}{88.3m/s}

    3.) Through basic algebra, we will get this

    \frac{1365m}{88.3m/s} = 15.46 s

    B.) Acceleration

    1.) The basic formula for acceleration is:

    a=\frac{Final velocity- initial velocity}{time}

    2.) Subsitute the values

    \frac{88.3m/s-0m/s}{15.46}

    *Notes:

    1.) Your question stated no initial velocity, only the final velocity

    2.) The value we inputted for time is the one that we solved for in section A

    3.) Solve for the answer

    a=\frac{88.3m/s}{15.46} = 5.71 m/s{2}

    The acceleration of the car is 0.5 m/s^2

    Explanation:

    In our case, the problem is about Motion in a Straight Line.

    1. For the formula, we will use

    V_{1} =V_{0} +at

    where

    V_{1}     is the final velocity, unit is in m/s

    V_{0}     is the initial velocity, unit is in m/s

    a      is the acceleration, unit is in m/s^2

    2. Let us list the given information, we have:

    V_{0} = 0 because the car starts from a stoplight

    V_{1} = 10 m/s

    t = 20 s

    a = ?

    3. Now, we are ready to solve for the acceleration.

    Using the formula, V_{1} =V_{0} +at substitute the given information

    V_{1} =V_{0} +at

    10m/s =0 +a(20s)

    Dividing both sides of the equation by 20s, we have:

    \frac{10m/s}{20s} =\frac{a(20s)}{20s}

    a = 0.5 m/s^2

    Therefore, the acceleration of the car is 0.5 m/s^2.
