    Answer:

    The acceleration of the car is 3.7\ m/s^2.

    Explanation:

    It is given that,

    Initial speed of the car, u = 0

    Final speed of the car, v = 60 km/h = 16.66 m/s

    Time, t = 4.5 s

    We need to find the acceleration of the car. It is equal to the change in velocity divided by time taken. It can be given by :

    a=\dfrac{v-u}{t}\\\\a=\dfrac{16.66-0}{4.5}\\\\a=3.7\ m/s^2

    So, the acceleration of the car is 3.7\ m/s^2. Hence, this is the required solution.
