[ACCEL1] 2

An advertisement says that a (OBJECT) can accelerate from a velocity of (VAR1) m


/s to a velocity of (VAR2) m/s in (VAR3) seconds. Assuming the acceleration to b
e uniform, what is the rate of acceleration ?
a = (v-u)/t = ( (VAR2) - (VAR1) ) / (VAR3) [metres per second per second]

An (OBJECT) slows down from a velocity of (VAR2) m/s to a velocity of (VAR1) m/s
in (VAR3) seconds. Assuming the acceleration to be uniform, what is the rate of
acceleration ?
a = (v-u)/t = ( (VAR1) - (VAR2) ) / (VAR3) [m/s] Note: negative result due to th
e object slowing down.

A (OBJECT) accelerates for a distance of (VAR1) metres at a uniform rate of (VAR
2) metres per second squared. If the initial velocity of the (OBJECT) was (VAR3)
metres per second, what is its final velocity ?
v = Square root of (u + 2as) = Sqrt( (VAR3) * (VAR3) + ( 2 * (VAR2) * (VAR1) )) [
metres per second]

A (OBJECT) travelling at (VAR1) metres per second accelerates uniformly at (VAR2
) metres per second per second for (VAR3) seconds. What distance would it cover
in this time ?
s = ut + at = ( (VAR1) * (VAR3) ) + ( 0.5 * (VAR2) * (VAR3) ) [metres]

A (OBJECT) brakes from a velocity of (VAR1) metres per second to rest. During th
is time it travels a distance of (VAR2) metres. What is the acceleration during
this period ? (Give your answer as a negative number)
a = (v-u)/2s = - (VAR1) / ( 2 * (VAR2) ) [m/s] Note: negative result indicates bra
king.
