A person pushing a stroller starts from rest, uniformly accelerating at a rate of 0.500 m/s^2. What is the velocity of the stroller after it has traveled 4.75 m?
Sorry, I made a typo.... the problem should say: what is the velocity of the stroller after it has traveled 6.32 m?
Use the formula V = sqrt(2aX),
where a is the acceleration and X is the distance travelled. This formula applies when the initial velocity is zero and the acceleration is constant in one direction..
Thanks! I got +2.51 m/s. Is this right?
Yes, that is what I got also.
