# Vectors and Average Accelerationacceleration when more than two different velocities occur

Suppose a car travels at 5m/s north for 5 seconds, it then turn east and travel at 7m/s for 10 seconds, finally it turns north east and travel at 10 m/s for 20 seconds. What is the average acceleration over these 35 seconds?

Suppose a car travels at 5m/s north for 5 seconds, it then turn east and travel at 7m/s for 10 seconds, finally it turns north east and travel at 10 m/s for 20 seconds. What is the average acceleration over these 35 seconds? II know acceleration average is the change in velocity over the change in time. IFIf there was just two vectors for velocity, then I would subtract those two vectorally. However, I don't know how to find the average acceleration from 3 or more vectors. Do I just subtract these 3 vectors vectorally and divide that the result by 35 seconds?
