Conceptual question Q: Can the equations of kinematics be used to find the total distance traveled? Starting from rest, a car accelerates down a straight ad with constant Ans: Yes, break up the problem into parts, one with acceleration a road with constant acceleration a 1 for a time t 1, then the acceleration is changed to a for and additional time t . 2 parts, one with acceleration a 1 for the first time interval and the other with a 2 for the second time interval, noting that in the a 2 a (m/s 2 ) 2 2 second time interval, the initial velocity is the final velocity from the first time interval.
