2.37: a) The car and the motorcycle have gone the same distance during the same time, so their average speeds are the same. The car's average speed is its constant speed v C , and for constant acceleration from rest, the motorcycle's speed is always twice its average, or 2 v C . b) From the above, the motorcyle's speed will be
