1. An object traveling at a constant speed of 22m/s begins to experience a force of 15N in the opposite direction of its motion. (Hint given: Start by finding objects acceleration)

a. How long will it take for the 8kg object to come to a complete stop once it experiences the force?

b. If the object was traveling in a straight line, how far did the object travel as it slowed down?

a = -F / m = -15 / 8 = -1.875m/s^2.

a. Vf = Vo + at,

t = (Vf - Vo) / a,

t = (0 - 22) / -1.875 = 11.73s.

b. Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2ad,

Solve for d and get:

d = (Vf^2 - Vo^2) / 2a,

d = (0 - (22)^2) / -3.75 = 129.1m.
