a jetliner traveling northward is landing with a speed of 80 m/s. Once the jet touches down, it has 800 m of runway in which to reduce its speed to 10 m/s. (a) Compute the average acceleration (magnitude and direction) of the plane during landing (take the direction of the plane's motion as positive). (b) How long a runway does the jetliner need to stop?

    WEll, it is headed north, with a negative acceleration.

    it takes d=800 to slow down.

    Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad

    a= (100-6400)/2*800=54/15 m/s^2 S

    what is d if Vf=0?

    0^2=6400+2(54/15)d
