Textbook Problem

A rabbit is moving in the positive x-direction at 2.00 m/s when it spots a predator and accelerates to a velocity of 12.0 m/s along the negative y-axis, all in 1.50 s. Determine (a) the x-component and (b) the y-component of the rabbit’s acceleration.

To determine
The x and y components of the rabbit’s acceleration.

Explanation

The x component of the rabbit’s average acceleration is,

aav,x=ΔvxΔt=vx,fvx,iΔt

  • vx,f is the x component of the final velocity
  • vx,i is the x component of the initial velocity
  • Δt is the time taken

Substitute 2.00m/s for vx,i , 0m/s for vx,f and 1.50s for Δt .

aav,x=0m/s2.00m/s1.50s=1
