Probably a bus because it has a greater mass. But its kinetic energy will be greater once acceleration is achieved.

### What is the acceleration experienced by a car that takes 10 seconds to reach 27 meters per seconds from rest?

velocity = acceleration x time 27 = acceleration x 10 acceleration = 2.7 m/sec/sec

### How does friction decrease the acceleration of a car?

friction decreases the acceleration of a car by creating a greater force which pushes against the acceleration force. the friction is a force, but more of it means that whatever is pushing against it ( acceleration in this case) is made smaller.

### Is traveling in a bus economic travel?

Yes it basically is because it takes a bunch of kids into 1 car or bus, instead of 16 cars

### Is a bus a car?

A bus isn't a car, because cars need less gas and buses need LOTS OF MORE GAS

### What is the accelaration of a car that goes from 45 to 55 kmh?

Acceleration is the change in velocity divided by time. You need to know how long this takes to solve the problem to determine acceleration

### Why does weight slow down a car?

The foundation of physics is Newton's equation, force equals mass times acceleration. Hence, for a given amount of force, more mass equals less acceleration. Or in other words, it takes force to move a weight. The more weight you are trying to move, the more force you need.
