# Question: At a sports car rally a car starting from rest

At a sports car rally, a car starting from rest accelerates uniformly at a rate of 9.0 m/s2 over a straight-line distance of 100 m. The time to beat in this event is 4.5 s. Does the driver beat this time? If not, what must the minimum acceleration be to do so?
