Traveling with an initial speed of 70 km/h, a car accelerates at 6000km/h^2 along a straight road. How long will it take to reach a speed of 120 km/h? Also, through what distance does the car travel during this time?
Show me the final answer↓
To figure out the time it takes for the car to reach 120 km/h, we will use the following formula:
(Where v_2 is final velocity, v_1 is initial velocity, a is constant acceleration and t is time)
From the question, we are given the following:
Let us substitute the values into our equation.
To find the distance the car travels during this time, we will use the following equation:
(Where v_2 is final velocity, v_1 is initial velocity, a_c is constant acceleration, s_2 is final displacement, and s_1 is initial displacement)
Let us substitute the values we know:
Distance traveled during this time = 792 m
