A car is initially travelling at a constant speed of 20 m/s along a highway. Suddenly, the driver applies the brakes, causing the car to accelerate at -5.0 m/s^2. If the driver applied the brakes 0.50s late, determine the distance the car travels from the moment the driver is about to brake until it stops.
