Problem 2-86 Linear Kinematics - (b)

A bicyclist, traveling at \(4.0\; km/h\) at the top of a hill coasts downward with constant acceleration, reaching a speed of \(33 \;km/h\) in \(33\; s.\) What distance, in metres, does the cyclist travel in that time?

We must convert the velocities to

(A)   \(\text{miles/h}\)

(B)  \(m/s\)

(C)  \(\text{furlongs/fortnight}\)
