Homework Help: physics

Posted by katie on Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 6:46pm.

You are arguing over a cell phone while trailing an unmarked police car by 25.0 m; both your car and the police car are traveling at 120 km/h. Your argument diverts your attention from the police car for 2.0 s (long enough for you to look at the phone and yell,I won't do that!). At the beginning of that 2.0 s, the police officer begins braking suddenly at 6.00 m/s2. (a) What is the separation between the two cars when your attention finally returns? Suppose that you take another 0.400 s to realize your danger and begin braking. (b) If you too brake at 6.00 m/s2, what is your speed (in km/h) when you hit the police car?
