A toy car starts from rest and accelerates at 1.50 m/s (El for 5.25 s. What is the final velocity, v.of the car? Show your work.?

Vf = Vo ± a*Δt
If starting is from rest , then Vo = 0 and a is positive, therefore :
Vf = a*Δ t = 1.5*(5.25-0) = 7.875 m/sec

If the acceleration is constant at 1.5 m/s^2, then we can use a kinematic equation for constant acceleration:
v = v0 + at = 0 + 1.5 m/s^2 * 5.25 s = 7.88 m/s
The initial velocity being 0 comes from the fact that the car starts from rest.
