# Uniform acceleration

**Classical Mechanics**Level 3

An object moving with uniform acceleration has a velocity of \( 12.0 \text{ cm/s} \) in \(+x\) direction with its current \(x\)-coordinate \( 3.00 \text{ cm.} \) If the \(x\)-coordinate \( 2.8 \text{ s} \) later is \( -5.00 \text{ cm,} \) what is the approximate acceleration \(\left(\text{in cm/s}^2 \right)? \)
