Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The moped accelerates uniformly over a time of 5.21 seconds for a distance of 110 meters. I have to a) find the average velocity, b) find the velocity at 5.21 seconds, and c) determine acceleration of the Moped.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm pretty sure that the average velocity is 21.11 m/s (distance/time), but I'm unsure how to solve the others. Help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does the moped start from rest?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My formula chart sez \[\Delta d = v_i \Delta t + \frac{1}{2}a (\Delta t)^2\] and you know d, v_initial, and t, so it's easy to solve for "a" ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1final velocity is pretty fast, can we hope that Ke$ha won't be able to get out of the way of the speeding moped?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol @ fixer... but your formula is way too intense for me :) I think that there's a way to figure it out without one other than the basics...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think ravi is saying that final velocity is twice average velocity (since initial velocity is zero), and than acceleration is (final velocity) / (time).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a=(42.222u)\2 u=initial velocity v=final velocity a=acceleration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ravi how'd you get 21.21? My calculations give 21.11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sir, it was written by mistake

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so it is 21.11? and then from there you said that velocity=initial velocity + acceleration * time?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and after that was initial velocity + final velocity= 42.22 m/s. Where did 42.22 come from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u+v=42.22 vu=5.21 a so adding these equation, we get 2v=42.22+5.21a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a=(vu)\t if moped started from rest then a=v\t=v\5.11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we have final equation for v v=( 42.22+5.11*(v\5.11) ) \ 2 solving this equation for v, we can find the value of final velocity .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here average velocity= (u+v)\2
