A car is moving eastwards with velocity 10 m/s. In 20 sec, the velocity changes to 10 m/s northwards. The average acceleration in this time

Q:A car is moving eastwards with velocity 10 m/s. In 20 sec, the velocity changes to 10 m/s northwards. The average acceleration in this time: (A)1/√2 m s-2 towards N-W (B)1/√2 ms-2 towards N-E (C) 1/2 m s-2 towards N-W (D) 1/2 ms-2 towards N Solution: The change in velocity is Δv = v2 – v1 = 10j – […]
