# A sports car moving at a constant speed travels 110 m in 5.0 s. If it then brakes and comes to a stop in 4.0 s, what is its acceleration in m/s/s? Express the answer in terms of "g's" when 1.00 g = 9.80 m/s/s.

#### Answer:

-.56g or the car is decelerating at .56g.

#### Explanation:

Acceleration is equal to the slope of a velocity vs. time graph or (change in velocity/change in time)

If you are only looking for the acceleration from t=5 to t=9:

1. Change in velocity:

2. Change in time: 4s

3. (Change in velocity)/(Change in time)=

4.

If you are looking for the average acceleration between t=0 to t=9:

1. Change in velocity:

2. Change in time: 9s

3. (Change in velocity)/(Change in time)=

4.
