Velocity and Acceleration Problems Name 1. A car accelerates uniformly from rest for a time of 12 sec. The rate of acceleration is 4 m/s2.
a) What is the velocity at the end of 12 sec.? b) How far did the car go in the ﬁrst 8 seconds?- 2. A truck accelerates from rest at a constant rate of 0.25 rn/s2 for a time of 60 see.
a) How fast is it going after 30 see? b) How far did it travel during the 60 see. time period? 3. An airplane accelerates unifome from an initial velocity of 15 m/s to a ﬁnal velocity of 45 m/s in a time
of 20 sec. ,
a) What is the plane's acceleration? b) How far did the plane move in the 20 sec. time period? 4. A ball is thrown upward with an initial velocity of 35 rn/s.
a) What is the velocity of the ball-after 3 sec? b) How high is the ball aﬁer 3 sec? ...
