If you go from 0 m/s to 50m/s in 5 seconds what is the distance you have traveled PLEASE HELP I just need some clarification

would the answer be 150 meter as each seconds she goes an average of 10m/s faster

OpenStudy (anonymous):

If you're learning kinematics equation you would use (xf - xi) = vit + (1/2)at^2
We know what our initial velocity is = 0m/s
we know what our final veloctiy is =50m/s
we know what time it takes = 5s
we need to find acceleration.
acceleration can be found by (vf - vi) / t

OpenStudy (anonymous):

with all the variables known except for x, you can now find the distance

THANK YOU

WAIT what does vit stand for

you a life saver

OpenStudy (anonymous):

would the answer be 2.5 or did i mess up

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh shoot i messed up

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i haven't done the calculated haha.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

wait so if x equals the distance traveled.........

yeah, you know that initial distance is 0m so you're looking for the final distance
