A) What is the acceleration? (m/s^2)

B) What is its speed after deceleration? (km/h)

A ANS = -.805m/s^2

B ANS = 52km

s = 450m

t = 20 seconds

u = 110km/h*1000m/km /60s/min*60 min/h

u = 110000/ 3600

u = 30.55

A) s = ut + 1/2 at^2

a = s - ut/ 1/2 * t^2

a = 450m - 30.55 * 20 sec/ 1/2 * 20^2

a = 450 - 611/ 1/2 * 400

a = -161/ 200

a = -.805m/s^2

I get stuck trying to figure out how to use the formula to get the answer to B which is 52 km.

I believe I would start with the formula: s = v + u/ 2 *t.

I would really appreciate the help with the second part of the question.

Thank you.
