Unit 1: One-Dimensional Kinematics

Problem Set A

 

Problem #1:

Seeing the light turn yellow, Willie Makeit gives it the gas and accelerates from +15.0 m/s to +23.1 m/s in 2.4 seconds. Determine the average acceleration of Willie's car.

 

 TIP:

This problem involves a straight-forward calculation of acceleration using the velocity change to time ratio. If you're having difficulties with this problem, you'll likely find the rest of the set very difficult. It is suggested that you first read about the topic using either your textbook or the available online materials.
