Answer to Question #3086 in Mechanics | Relativity for chalani jayawardena
1.what is the car's acceleration?
2.what time period it moves by acceleration?
3.mention the distance that the car moves by acceleration.
4.mention the distance that the car moves by retardation.
First we should find out by what time the car moved with acceleration
Let t1 - time on AB
t2-time on BC
t3-time on CD
t1=t3=(35-20)/2=7.5s - time period when car moves with acceleration
on AB v=a*t, a- acceleration, v-velocity
The distance that car moves by acceleration s= a*t2/2
Hence s=1.33*7.52/2=37.5 m
The distance that car moves by retardation is the same to the distanse by acceleration
While solving this task we assume that the absolute value of the acceleration on AB is similar to the absolute value of the retardation on CD. If it isn't so the problem hasn't got a unique solution
