Correct Answer - Option 2 : 1 m/s2

CONCEPT:

  • Acceleration (a): The rate of change of velocity is known as acceleration.
    • It is a vector quantity.

\(\overrightarrow{a} = {\overrightarrow{Δ v} \over Δ t} \)

where a is the vector quantity, Δv is the velocity, and Δt is the time.

  • To convert speed from km/h to m/s, we multiply it by 5/18.

CALCULATION:

​Given:

 Vi = 54 km/h = 54 × (5/18) = 15m/s and Vf = 72 km/h = 72 × (5/18) = 20 m/s and Δt = 5s

\(\overrightarrow{a} = {\overrightarrow{Δ v} \over Δ t} = {\overrightarrow{ v_f} -\overrightarrow{ v_i} \over Δ t}\)

\(\overrightarrow{a} = {20 -15 \over 5}=1m/s^2\)

  • So the correct answer is option 2.
