PhysCasts: Motion of an Electric Vehicle

Hall, B. (Brenton)


This PhysCast deals with one dimensional motion. An electric vehicle starts from rest and accelerates at a rate of 2.0 m/s2 in a straight line until it reaches a speed of 20 m/s. The vehicle then slows at a constant rate of 1.0 m/s2 until it stops. (a) How much time elapses from the start to the stop? (b) How far does the vehicle travel from start to stop?
