It says the rollercoaster climbs 55 meters in 3 seconds. The question is: calculate the acceleration assuming it's constant and vertical. What would happen to the acceleration if the if the time taken to climb was 4 seconds. That's the 1st question.
It's going up.
It says It's going up vertically.
It says it's going up not coming down. In that case it would be easier a=g.
I used this equation but there are 2 unknown values couldn't proceed, x= at^2/2 + vt + x
simplifies to a=(110 - 6v)/ 9. v is initial velocity. Because initial velocity is not given anywhere in the question, i got stuck here. So i thought i should ask a question on this forum because i never knew you could find acceleration with just distance and time given. ðŸ˜…
HI, I have a question where a roller-coaster does 55m in 3s and we are asked to calculate its acceleration assuming it's vertical and constant. Other than that, there is no other information given, no initial velocity, no final velocity. So can you find the acceleration of an object with only distance and time given?
