# 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**

where,

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.**

**a = v / t**, where a is acceleration, v is velocity, and t is time.
