Answer to Question #716 in Mechanics | Relativity for Rooky
Starting from rest, how long does it take a moving man to reach a velocity of 5 m/sec if his acceleration is 1.75 m/sec^2?
According to acceleration formula :
a = v - v0 / t - t0 ; according to our situation - t0 = 0; v0 = 0 so
a = v / t , so t = a/v = 1.75 / 5 = 0.35
