A car starts from rest at a stop sign. It accelerates at 2.0 m/s^2for 6.0 seconds, coasts for 2.0 s, and then slows down at a rate of 1.5 m/s^2 for the next stop sign.

How far apart are the stop signs?

divide it into three parts.

part one: acceleration.

find vf from a*t then find distance

part two: constant velocity

you know v, d=v*t

part three:

you know vi, vf, and a. Find distance

vf^2=vi^2+2ad

add the three distances
