A car starts from rest and travels for 6.3 s with
a uniform acceleration of 2.3 m/s2. The driver
then applies the brakes, causing a uniform
acceleration of −1.9 m/s2.
If the brakes are applied for 2.6 s, how fast
is the car going at the end of the braking
vₒ=a1•t1 = 6.3•2.3 =14.49 m/s
v=vₒ-a2•t2 = 14.49 – 1.9-2.6 = 9.55 m/s
