A sprinter starts from rest and reaches his top speed in 10 seconds running with a constant acceleration. He then maintains that top speed and finishes the 200 m run in the overall time of 25 seconds. Find his acceleration. a = _____________________ 4. A model rocket initially at rest on the ground is fired vertically upward, and the engine thrust produces a constant acceleration a = 25 m/s 2 . After running for 4 s the engine is cut off and then the rocket is in free fall. Find the speed of the rocket just before it hits the ground. υ = _____________________...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
