In 1992, a 14-kg meteorite struck a car in Peekskill, NY, leaving a 20-cm-deep dent in the trunk.

If the meteorite was moving at 500 m/s before striking the car, what was the magnitude of its acceleration while stopping?

Find the time it takes for the meteorite to come to a complete stop.

Step 1

Let *u* be the initial velocity of meteorite, *v* be the final velocity, *a* be the acceleration, *t *be the time taken for the meteorite to come to a complete stop, *s *be the distance travelled before stopping.

Write all the given values in the question.

Step 2

Write the expression for the third kinematic equation of the motion.

Step 3

Write the expression for the first kin...
