Acceleration (a)= 5.71

Time= 15.46 seconds

Explanation:

A.) Time

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

2.) Substitute the values:

3.) Through basic algebra, we will get this

B.) Acceleration

1.) The basic formula for acceleration is:

2.) Subsitute the values

*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

The acceleration of the car is 0.5 m/

Explanation:

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

1. For the formula, we will use

where

is the final velocity, unit is in m/s

is the initial velocity, unit is in m/s

is the acceleration, unit is in m/

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

= 0 because the car starts from a stoplight

= 10 m/s

t = 20 s

a = ?

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

Using the formula, substitute the given information

Dividing both sides of the equation by , we have:

a = 0.5 m/

Therefore, the acceleration of the car is 0.5 m/.
