Car Acceleration Calculation

A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly over a time of 5.21 seconds for a distance of 110 m. Determine the acceleration of the car.

The acceleration of the car is 4.05 m/s², if it accelerates uniformly over a period of 5.21 seconds for 110 meters.

We know that,

a = v / t

v = d / t


a = Acceleration

v = Velocity

t = Time

d = Distance

Given that,

t = 5.21 s

d = 110 m

v = 110 / 5.21

v = 21.11 m/s

a = 21.11 / 5.21

a = 4.05 m/s²

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object over its period of movement. It is denoted as a.

Therefore, the acceleration of the car is 4.05 m/s².

What is the formula to calculate acceleration? The formula to calculate acceleration is a = v / t, where a is acceleration, v is velocity, and t is time.
