1. A car accelerates from $3 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ to $15 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ in 6 seconds. What is it's acceleration.
2. A ball is dropped from a height, which takes 3 seconds to reach the ground. What is the final speed of the ball just before it hits the ground? $ \left( g = 10 \, \text{m s}^{-2} \right) $
3. A car driver plans to take a total of two hours to make a journey of 75 km. The driver allocated a rest time of 45 mins in the middle of the journey.

At what average speed must the driver travel during the rest of the time if she wants to complete the journey in the two hours?
4. 2 balls are being dropped from different heights. Ball A takes twice the time ball B takes to reach the ground. Which of the following statements is correct?
5. A car accelerates from $3 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ to $9 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ in 2 seconds. What is its average speed?
6. A car travels 9 km to the west, 5 km to the north, 9 km to the east and 5 km to the south. What is its displacement?
7. A ball is thrown vertically upwards off a cliff at a speed of $23 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $. It falls to the bottom of the cliff after 10 seconds. What is the height of the cliff? $ \left( g = 10 \, \text{m s}^{-2} \right) $
8. A car accelerates uniformly from $5 \text{ m s}^{-1}$ to $13 \text{ m s}^{-1}$ in 4.0 seconds. What is the acceleration of the car in $\text{m s}^{-2}$?
9. A ticker tape timer produces 50 dots on a tape in 1 second. Below is a portion of the tape:

Ticker Tape Timer 

How long was the time taken to produce the above strip?
10. A ball, located an at initial height h, is thrown downwards. The ball has an initial velocity of $10 \, \text{m s}^{-1} $ downwards and takes three seconds to reach the ground. What is the initial height, h? $ \left( g = 10 \, \text{m s}^{-2} \right)$
