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

vi = 18.5 m/s

vf = 46.1 m/s

t = 2.47 s

Find:

a = ??

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
