a. what distance will the car travel before it stops?

b. if the driver was able to apply the brakes instantaneously without a reaction time, over what distence would the car stop?

c. assume your car was traveling at 30.0 m/s instead. without performing any calculations, would the answer now be less than, equal to or larger than before? explain your answer.
