If an object with uniform acceleration (or deceleration) has a speed of #5 m/s# at #t=0# and moves a total of 125 m by #t=8#, what was the object's rate of acceleration?
The acceleration is
We will use the following equation to determine acceleration.
However, we must first determine the final velocity using the following equation.
Now that we have the final velocity, we can use the first equation to determine the acceleration.
