    uniform acceleration

    A woman drives 10 miles, accelerating uniformly from rest to 60mph. Graph her velocity versus time.How long does it take for her to reach 60mph?

    wooow im stuck.. does accelerating uniformly mean accelerating is constant or 0?

    It means at a constant acceleration (0 is also a constant, but won't get you from to 60 very fast).

    I presume that her speed when she has driven 10 miles is 60 mph.
