A loaded garbage truck has low acceleration. It takes pm 10 seconds to go from 0 to 100 What is the acceleration of the garbage truck How much slower is the acceleration of the garbage truck compared to the acceleration of the sports car in Figure Garbage truck I Speed goes from 010100 in 10 seconds
You didn't give us a photo of Figure 4-18, so we don't know anything about the sports car. But here's how to answer the question on your own: Acceleration = (change in speed) divided by (time for the change) and Change in speed = (end speed) minus (start speed) So, the garbage truck's acceleration is ... (100 km/hr - 0) / (10 sec) = 10 km/hr per second . Calculate the acceleration of the sports car the same way, and then you can compare them.
