Acceleration = (change in speed)/(time for the change) = (15-5)/(6) = 10/6 = 12/3 meters per second2

### What is a car's acceleration if it increases its speed from 5 meters per second to 20 meters per second in 3 seconds?

In general, the acceleration during that time interval could vary considerably. However, we can calculate the average acceleration during the interval. The change in speed is 20 meters per second - 5 meters per second = 15 meters per second, and this change in speed occurs over a 3 second interval. Thus the average change in speed over this interval is 15 meters per second/ 3 seconds = 5 meters per second per second = 5 meters/second2

### A car accelerates from 4 meters/second to 16 meters/second in 4 seconds. The car’s acceleration is blankmeters/second2?

The acceleration of the body is 3 m/s²

### What is the acceleration of a sprinter that runs a race in 12 seconds and finishes the race traveling 24 meters per second?

The sprinter's acceleration is 2 meters per second squared.

### What is the acceleration of 3 meters per second to 9 meters per second in 3 seconds?

acceleration = change in velocity divided by timeaccel = (9-3)/3 = 6/3 = 2 meters per second per second

### Ignoring the effects of air resistance what is the speed in of the object after falling 3 seconds?

Assuming (1) the object starts from rest, (2) air resistance is insignificant, the object speeds up by about 9.8 meters/second every second. That's the strength of the gravitational field. Just multiply this acceleration (9.8 meters/second2) by the time.

### How much does its speed change after 5 minutes with an acceleration of 470 meters per second?

"470 meters per second" is a speed, not an acceleration. Assuming you mean "470 meters per second square", that is the same as a change of 470 meters per second every second. Just multiply by the number of seconds to get the change in speed."470 meters per second" is a speed, not an acceleration.

### Find the acceleration of a car that goes from A meters per second to B meters per second in 8 seconds?

It would be (B-A)/8

### What is the rate of acceleration for a car that reaches a speed of three meters per second from rest in ten seconds?

0.3 meters per second

### Why is acceleration often expressed with units of meters per second squared?

Because if speed is measured in meters per second (m/s) and time is measured in seconds, the SI unit of acceleration is meters per second per second (m/s2). ^_^

### What is the acceleration of a car that goes from 32 meters per second to 96 meters per second in 8 seconds?

Acceleration = (change in speed) divided by (time for the change)Acceleration = (96 - 32) / 8 = 64/8 = 8 meters per second2

### An object's velocity changes from 30 meters per second to 23 meters per second in 3 seconds What is is its acceleration?

-2.33 metres per second squared

### If a car takes 10 seconds to go from 0meters per second to 25 meters per second at constant acceleration what is the acceleration?

Acceleration = (change in speed) divided by (time for the change) = (25) / (10) = 2.5 meters per second2
