The distance required for an emergency stop for a car varies directly as the square of the car’s speed. A car traveling at 50 mph requires 140 feet to stop. What is the stopping distance for a car traveling at 30 mph? What is the stopping distance for a car traveling at 70 mph?

    You are told that

    d(v) = kv^2

    140 = k*2500
    k = 0.056

    so,
    d(30) = .056*900
    d(70) = .056*4900
