**Reiny**, Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 2:30pmd = k v^2

when v=25, d= 0 ????

you see to have a typo .

suppose you meant to type d=50

then

50 = k(25)^2

k = 50/625 = 1/25

d = (1/25) v^2

so when v= 60

d = (1/25)(3600) = 144

Once you have determined what your typo was, replace the 50 in my solution with the correct value of d
