Acceleration Worksheet
1.While traveling along the highway a driver slows down from 24 m/s to
15m/s in 12 seconds. What is the automobiles acceleration?

• G = Vf Vi T            U= A
• Equation: Vf - Vi = A
•             T
•    15-24 = -0.75 m/s/s
•      4.5
2.A parachute on a racing dragster opens and changes the speed of the car
from 85 m/s to 45m/s in a period of 4.5 sec. What is the acceleration of the
dragster?

•   G = Vf Vi T                             U=A
•   Equation
•   Vf - Vi = A
•      T
•   85-45 = 8.89 m/s/s
•   4.5
3.The table below shows data for a ball rolling downhill. Fill in the missing
data and then determine the acceleration of the rolling ball.

Time (seconds)                            Speed (km/hr)
0                                        0
2                                        3
4                                        6
6                                        9
8                                        12
10                                        15

Every 2 seconds the ball goes 3km/hr faster

Every 1 second it goes 1.5 km/hr faster

Acceleration is 1.5 km/hr/sec
4. A car traveling at a speed of 30.0 m/s encounters an emergency and
comes to a complete stop How much time will it take the car to stop if
it decelerates at -4m/s/s?
