Simple One Dimensional Kinematics 

1. A jet aircraft is accelerating down a runway.  The jet aircraft has 12 seconds to get up to 300 m/s.  What is the average acceleration of the aircraft? 

2. A jet aircraft is accelerating down a runway.  The jet aircraft has 12 seconds to get up to 300 m/s.  What is the minimum runway length for this aircraft?

3. A dragster is moving down the track a 70 m/s and wants to come to a stop in 15 seconds?  (by the way 70 m/s is about 160 mph) 

One dimensional kinematics problems with free fall

4. You are standing on the edge of a cliff, and dropped a ball of the cliff.  5 seconds after dropping the ball, it hts the ground.  What is the height the cliff? 

 4. You are standing on the edge of a cliff, and dropped a ball of the cliff.  5 seconds after dropping the ball, it hts the ground.  How fast is the ball traveling the instant before it hits the ground?
