Cheetahs can accelerate to a speed of 20.2 m/s in 2.65 s and can continue to accelerate to reach a top speed of 29.0 m/s . Assume the acceleration is constant until the top speed is reached and is zero thereafter. Let the +? direction point in the direction the cheetah runs.

Express the cheetah's top speed ?top in miles per hour (mi/h) .

Starting from a crouched position, how much time ?accel does it take a cheetah to reach its top speed and what distance ? does it travel in that time?
