A car traveling at a speed of 25 m/s suddenly sees the red light 40 m ahead of him. The driver takes 0.75 s to react and slows the car down at a constant rate of 10 m/s². 1. How long does it take the car to come to a complete stop from the moment the break was applied? 2. Find the total time the car takes to come to a complete stop from the moment the driver first saw the red light. 3. Determine whether the car ran the red light.
