I have designed a new automobile. It's super fast, and shaped like a gall blader. It is able to accelerate from 12 mph to 55 mph in precisely 35 seconds. Assuming constant acceleration, find the following:
a) The acceleration in meters per second.
b)The distance traveled by the car during those extreme 35 seconds.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it meters per second or miles per hour?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Letter a asks for meters per second per second...so I'm guessing per second squared? The actual speeds, mph in a matter of seconds. That's what I'm extremely confused on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's a bummer. you're sure, right? and they don't give you some kind of conversion?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It just tells me that it goes from 1255 mph in 35 seconds. Then it says to find the acceleration in meters per second per second. I'm assuming that it expects us to convert on our own, but I'm not exactly sure how.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want to get from miles per hour to meters per second

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what you do is miles/hour * (hour/3600 seconds)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you can always multiply by 1, that way you get rid of the hours in the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then you multiply by ( x meters / miles) and hopefully you can figure out how many meters in a mile so i don't have to do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you eliminate mph by doing...12mi/h*h/3600sec?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then multiply by x meters / miles whatever x is from the conversion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is what I did...12mi/hr*hr/3600 sec=12mi/3600sec*1609.344m/mi=12 1609.344m/3600sec...is this correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you should simplify and get 1397meters/3125 sec
