Suppose the velocity of a car at any time t is given by the equation

v=60 m/s +0.50 m/s³h,

Derive an expression for the instantaneous acceleration as a function of time

v=60 m/s +0.50 m/s³h,

Derive an expression for the instantaneous acceleration as a function of time

Answer: acceleration is time derivative of speed.

When v(t) = 60 + 0.50t, is a(t) = v’ (t) = 0.50 (m/s²)
