Uniformly Accelerated Motion
On this worksheet you will practice solving problems by using the
five basic kinematics equations
for uniformly accelerated motion.
A car accelerates uniformly from rest to a final speed of 19 m/sec in 9 seconds. How far does it travel during this period of acceleration?
What acceleration did the car is
A pickup truck moving at 30 m/sec must come to a stop in a distance of 200 meters to avoid hitting a boulder that has fallen onto the road. How much time does the driver have to avoid an accident?
What acceleration did the truck experience in
A row boat, starting from rest, takes 9 seconds to travel 30 meters. If the boat maintains a uniform acceleration, what will be its instantaneous velocity at the end of this intial 9-second period?
At the point in the stream where the boat in
is crossing, the stream is a total of 200 meters wide. If the boat continues maintaining the final velocity it achieves at the end of 9 seconds for the remainder of the trip, how much total time will it need to reach the opposite shore?
What acceleration did the row boat initially experience in
A go-cart, accelerating down a hill at 2.25 m/sec
can travel 65 meters in 7.5 seconds. What was the cart's initial velocity at the top of the hill after a subtle, not so official, push-start?
What was the cart's final velocity when it reached the bottom of the hill?
