If train A leaves from El Paso at high noon and train B leaves from Dallas at 1 PM, you won't know when they meet unless you master 1D kinematics. What are you waiting for?

Suppose that the displacement \(s\) of an aeroplane can be expressed as a function of time \(t\) in the following way: \[ s(t) = 8 t^2 + 10 t .\] What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the object?

Stacey was driving her car at a speed of \(30\text{ mph}\) on a straight avenue, when suddenly she noticed that she had forgotten to bring her purse. So she immediately made a U-turn and headed back to her house. Now she is almost home, and she looks at her watch, recognizing that \(30\) minutes has passed from the moment of the U-turn. If her current speed is \(40\text{ mph},\) what is her average acceleration for the \(30\) minutes on her way back home?
