What is the acceleration produced on an object if it changes its velocity from 36 cm/min to 288 m/h in 10 min ?


A driver was driving a car weighing 500 kg towards his home, covering a distance of 100 km in one hour. He realizes that he is late for a party and accelerates the motion of the car. After 10 minutes he is covering a distance of 2 km in one minute. How much force did the engine apply on the car to achieve the acceleration?

I am a graduate student majoring in early childhood education and I am required to take a science course. I took an "easy" course so I thought! I tried for hours to figure these questions out and I can't. Thank you for all your help!
