First you need to find the two different speeds of the car which is the distance/time. We find that the car first travels at an average of 6ms-1 and then after accelerating has a speed of 10ms-1. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity over time, our change of velocity being 10-6=4ms-1 and the change in time being stated as 3 seconds we can convert this into... (4/3)ms-2

If a car travels 200 meters in 10 seconds what is the speed of the car

(change in velocity)/(change in time)=avg. acceleration (-30 m/s)/(15s)= -2 m/s2

Just divide distance by time to get speed.30 miles / 1.5 hrs = 20 MPH

Acceleration = (change in speed) / (change in time) = (30 m/s) / (10 sec) = 3 meters per second2

Acceleration = change in speed/time = (20-5)/3 = 15/3 = 5 units of speed per second. It is not possible to be any more precise because the unit of speed (kilometres per hour, miles per hour, metres per second) is unspecified.
