0.5a*t^2 = 0.5a(0.5t-1.04)^2,

0.5*3,59t^2 = 0.5*4.77(t-1.04)^2,

1.795t^2 = 2.385(t-1.04)^2,

0.7526t^2 = t^2-2.08t+1.082,

0.7526t^2 -t^2+2.08t =1.082,

-0,2474t^2 +2.08t - 1.082 = 0,

Use Quadratic formula and get:

t = 7.85 s.

b. d = 0.5*a*t^2,

d = 0.5*4.77*(7.85)^2 = 147 m.

c. V = 4.77*7.85 = 37.44 m/s.

d. V = 3.59 * (7.85+1.04) = 3i.9 m/s.
