Sprinting near the end of a race, a runner with
a mass of 75 kg accelerates from a speed of 5.0 m/s to a speed of 8.0 m/s in
2.0 s. What is the runner’s average acceleration during this time?
Change in speed = 8m/s - 5m/s = 3m/s
Time = 2s
Acceleration = Change in speed / time = 3/2 = 1.5m/s^s
Hope this helped!
