11.  A cheetah can run at a maximum speed of 8.33m/s. How far can a cheetah run in 3.27s?

Solution

∆x= x final – x initial; where x is displacement; xf (final position) xi  (initial position)

xf (final position) = 69.4m

xi  (initial position)=16.4m

69.4-16.4 = 53m

A paper airplane flies 2.8m in 1.8s. What is the airplane’s average speed?

Sav  =d/t;  Given distance of 2.8m and time of 1.6s;

2.8m / 1.6s=1.8m/s

A race car’s velocity increases from 4.0m/s to 36m/s over 4.0s time interval. What is the average acceleration?

Average acceleration;

Velocity final – Velocity initial / time taken

36m/s – 4m/s =32m/s

32 / 4= 8m/s^2
