Question

) A car is moving on a straight road and going at 20 mi/h. Then the driver hits
abruptly the breaks and the car undergoes a motion of constant negative acceleration
until it stops. We ignore any air-resistance and assume that the car slows down in the
most efficient possible way. It comes at a full stop after going a distance of 6.0 m.
How much time would it take for the car to stop if instead the initial speed was 45 mi/h
and driver hit the breaks as abruptly as in the first case?
a. 1.5 s
b. 3.0 s
c. 1.4 s
d. 0.85 s

Step 1
