# A squirrel sitting on the ground starts to run with an acceleration of 5.1 m/s^2. How fast is the squirrel going after .25 seconds?

$1.27 \text{m/s}$

#### Explanation:

Use $v = u + a t$

Since $u$, the initial velocity, is zero we can write:

$v = 0 + a t$

$\therefore v = 0 + 5.1 \times 0.25 = 1.27 \text{m/s}$
