Solution Summary

The acceleration of a car and projectile motion are analyzed. The initial speed, speed at the highest point and the time of flight are given. With good explanations, the calculations solve the problems.

Solution Preview

initial velocity (u)= 0
acceleration = a = 6 m/s^2
final velocity due to acceleration = 30 m/s
v = u +a*t
=> t = (30-0)/6 = 5 s
Hence, after 5 sec the car will travel at constant speed of 30 m/s
