| **With what acceleration does the plane move on the runway, if in 20 seconds of acceleration it has reached a speed of 360 km / h?**

To find the acceleration of a given aircraft, we use the formula: a = (V – V0) / t.

Variables: V is the speed reached by the aircraft (V = 360 km / h = 100 m / s); V0 – speed before acceleration (V0 = 0 m / s); t – movement time (t = 20 s).

Calculation: a = (V – V0) / t = (100 – 0) / 20 = 5 m / s2.

Answer: Along the runway, the given aircraft had to move with an acceleration of 5 m / s2.
