Acceleration = rate of change of velocity = distance units / time units squared

thanks GT

So, it could be ft/sec^2, inches/hour^2, or any such thing.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it doesn't have to be specifically m/s^2 like GT , it is going to be distance over time^2 so it can be ft/s^2 or anything
anonymous

oh i see... i have web homework..i was putting m/s^2 and it wasnt right..maybe i should try ft/sec^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
well it depends on the question, if you show us we can help. it won't necessarily be ft/s^2 but it will depend on the way your question is worded

Suppose that an accelerating car goes from 0 mph to 68.2 mph in five seconds. Its velocity is given in the following table, converted from miles per hour to feet per second, so that all time measurements are in seconds. (Note: 1 mph is 22/15 ft/sec.) Find the average acceleration of the car over each of the first two seconds. t (s) 0 1 2 3 4 5 v(t) (ft/s) 0.00 34.09 59.09 77.27 90.91 100.00 give the average acceleration over the 1st and 2nd second 1st second ___ = 2nd second ___ =

It is the difference in velocities during those periods divided by the time elapsed.

  • anonymous
it will be units of ft/s^2 like you had thought!

nice....thanks!!!!

man calc 1 here at this school is TOUGH!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
NOT this problem persay...but the exams
anonymous
  • anonymous
and in my head, i think your answer should be 25 ft/s^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
that question wasn't really calculus aha.
anonymous
  • anonymous
and calculus is never easy until you fully understand it! it required much deeper thought than regular math
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha i mean, overall calc here is hard...and umm yea i think the answer was 25 ft/sec^2 or something lol
