If an olympic cyclist reaches 18m/s from a standing start in 20s, what is her average acceleration?
This is for physics. I haven't had my first official day for it so I'd like to get ahead a bit. I would like to know the formula used to solve this problem and an explanation for the phenomenon concerning it.
The answer should be 0.90 m/s squared (If possible, I'd like to know why it is squared...)
