When a high speed passenger train travelling at 161km/h rounds a bend,the engineer is shocked to see that a locomtive has improperly entered onto track from a siding and is a distance D=676m ahead.The locomotive is moving at 29km/h. The engineer of the high speed train immediately applies the brakes. What must be the magnitude of the resulting constant decelaration if a collision is to be just avoided?(note: both the train and the locomotive are moving in the same direction)
