Round your answer to three decimal places.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1feet = 3.2808meters

acceleration = Change in velocity/change in time

= distance/time^2

= 1/3.2808

= 0.305f/s^2

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

how would it work if it was 9 meters per second

Oct 15th, 2015

Converting the units to feet we have;

if 1feet  = 3.2808meter

9meters = ?feet

=9/3.2808

= 2.743feet

a=distance/time^2

= 2.7432f/s^2
