A race car accelerates uniformly from 18.5 m/s to 46.1 m/s in 2.47 seconds. Determine the acceleration of the car and the distance traveled.

a = (Delta v)/t 

a = (46.1 m/s - 18.5 m/s)/(2.47 s) 

a = 11.2 m/s2 

d = vi*t + 0.5*a*t2 

d = (18.5 m/s)*(2.47 s)+ 0.5*(11.2 m/s2)*(2.47 s)2 

d = 45.7 m + 34.1 m 

d = 79.8 m
