# If a car increases its velocity from 0 to 60 km/h in 10 seconds, what its acceleration is?

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.

## Answer: If a car increases its velocity from 0 to 60 km/h in 10 seconds, its acceleration is 21600 km/h^{2}.

Let's solve this question step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given: Initial velocity(u) = 0km/h

Final velocity(v) = 60 km/h

Time taken(t) = 10 s

Convert time from second to hours

10/3600 h = 1/360 h.

Putting these values in Newton’s first equation of motion,

v = u + at

⇒ 60 = 0 + a × 1/360

⇒ 60 × 360 = a

⇒ a = 21600 km/h^{2}
