For how long is it accelerated? Answer in units of s. Question 2, chap 2, sect 5. part 2 of 3 10 points What speed will the bolt have attained 4 . 5 s after leaving the crossbow? Answer in units of m / s. Question 3, chap 2, sect 5. part 3 of 3 10 points How far will the bolt have traveled during the 4 . 5 s? Answer in units of m.
