# Question: the acceleration of a race car for the first few...

###### Question details

The acceleration of a race car for the first few seconds of the race can be approximated by the a(t) = A + Bt linear formula, where t is the time measured in seconds and the values of the constants A and B are: A = 16.0 m/s2 and B = -2.00 m/s3. What is the speed of the car 2.30 s after it starts from rest?

How much distance does the car cover during this 2.30 s time
period?
