## The acceleration of car is 0.2 ms⁻²

Explanation:When the car moves , the distance covered is calculated by the relation

S = u t + a t²

In this question u = 0 , because car was at rest initially

Thus S = a t²

here S is displacement and a is the acceleration of car

Therefore 360 = a ( 60 )²

Because time taken is one minute or 60 seconds

Therefore a =

or a = 0.2 m s⁻²
