Chapter 2: Describing Motion: Kinematics in One Dimension
A car decelerates from a speed of 40 km/h to rest in seconds.
What is the magnitude of the acceleration in m/s2 to one decimal
A car decelerates from a speed of 50 m/s to rest in meters.
What is the magnitude of its acceleration to one decimal place?
How long to the nearest second does it take a car
accelerating from rest at 2.5 m/s^2 to cover a distance of meters?
A car travelling at 36 m/s passes a policeman who
immediately accelerates at m/s^2
from rest in pursuit. To the nearest second how long does it take the
policeman to catch the speeder?
A stone falls off a tall building and hits the ground seconds
later. To the nearest meter how high was the building?
Standing on the top ledge of a 55 meter high building you
throw a ball straight up with an initial speed of m/s.
How long, to the nearest second, does it take to hit the ground?
If the building in 6) was meters
high and you throw the ball at 30 m/s, how high to the nearest meter does it
A person jumps from a window meters
high and is caught in a firefighter's net which stretches 0.6 meter. To the nearest
tenth of a m/s^2, what is the magnitude of the person's acceleration in the
How far to the nearest meter can a sprinter running at 9
m/s, travel in the time it takes a rock to fall meters?
A helicopter travelling upward at m/s
drops a package from a height of 500 meters. To the nearest second how long does
it take to hit the ground?
