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 • Réponse publiée par: HaHannah

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/ .
