| **The car, having a speed of 4 m / s, begins to move with uniform acceleration. What path will it cover in 5 seconds if its acceleration is 1.5 m / s2?**

Note that the car drives uniformly accelerated and with an initial speed, therefore, its speed at the beginning is 5 seconds:

V = V0 + a * t = 4 + 1.5 * 4 = 10m / s

S = V * t + a * t ^ 2/2

S in the fifth second = V * 1 + 1.5 * 1/2 = 10 + 0.75 = 10.75m
