# A car accelerates from 6 ms–1 to 16 ms–1 in 10 sec. Calculate (a) the acceleration and (b) the distance covered by the car in that time.

Initial velocity = u

u = 6m/s

Final velocity = v

V = 16m/s

Time = t = 10 s

• Acceleration = a

a = (v-u) / t

= (16-6)/10

= 1 m/s2

• Distance = s

s = s = = 110 m
