A jetliner, traveling northward, is landing with a speed of 60 m/s. Once the jet touches down, it has 795 m of runway in which to reduce its speed to 5.6 m/s. Compute the average acceleration (magnitude and direction) of the plane during landing (take the positive direction to be northward).

  • Physics - ,

    Vi = 60
    5.6 = 60 + a t
    a t = - 54.4
    so
    t = -54.4/a

    795 = 60 t + (1/2) a t^2
    795 = 60 (-54.4/a) + .5 (2960/a)
    795 a = -3264 + 1480
    a = -2.24 m/s^2
