The initial velocity is 0 (from rest) and the final velocity is 36 km/h Average acceleration =  36 km/h - 0       36 km/h                                       ---------------- = ---------------                                        20 seconds      20 seconds We now convert 36 km/h to m/s as follows 36 km/h = 36 * 1000 m / 3600 s = 10 m/s  Hence Average acceleration =    10 m/s                                                              ----------------- = 0.5 m/s squared                                         20 seconds
