Question 26 26. A car drives by at a speed of 8 m/s. Three seconds after the car passes you (t = 3 s) the driver hits the gas and the car begins to accelerate. Nine seconds after the car passes you (t = 9 s) the car has reached a speed of 40 m/s. What was the car's acceleration between t = 3 seconds and t = 9 seconds?
