LINEAR MOTION PROBLEMS 20122. The average person passes out at an acceleration of7 g (that is, seven times the gravitational acceleration onEarth). Suppose a car is designed to accelerate at this rate.How much time would be required for the car to acceler-ate from rest to 60.0 miles per hour? (The car would needrocket boosters!)23. A certain car is capable of accelerating at a rate of10.60 m/s". How long does it take for this car to go from aspeed of 55 mi/h to a speed of 60 mi/h?26. A car is traveling due east at 25.0 m/s at some instant.(a) If its constant acceleration is 0.750 m/s due east, findits velocity after 8.50 s have elapsed. (b) If its constantacceleration is 0.750 m/s2 due west, find its velocity after8.50 s have elapsed.27. A car traveling east at 40.0 m/s passes a trooper hiding atthe roadside. The driver uniformly reduces his speed to25.0 m/s in 3.50 s. (a) What is the magnitude and direc-tion of the car's acceleration as it slows down? (b) How fardoes the car travel in the 3.5-s time period?29. A truck covers 40.0 m in 8.50 s while smoothly slowingdown to a final velocity of 2.80 m/s. (a) Find the truck'soriginal speed. (b) Find its acceleration.33. ecp In a test run, a certain car accelerates uniformlyfrom zero to 24.0 m/s in 2.95 s. (a) What is the magni-tude of the car's acceleration? (b) How long does it takethe car to change its speed from 10.0 m/s to 20.0 m/s?(c) Will doubling the time always double the change inspeed? Why?34. ecp A jet plane lands with a speed of 100 m/s and canaccelerate at a maximum rate of -5.00 m/s as it comes torest. (a) From the instant the plane touches the runway,what is the minimum time needed before it can come torest? (b) Can this plane land on a small tropical islandairport where the runway is 0.800 km long?38. A car accelerates uniformly from rest to a speed of40.0 mi/h in 12.0 s. Find (a) the distance the car travelsduring this time and (b) the constant acceleration of thecar.
