Homework Help: physics

Posted by Johanah on Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 11:12pm.

The human body can survive an acceleration trauma incident (sudden stop) if the magnitude of the acceleration is less than 250 m/s2. If you are in an automobile accident with an initial speed of 136 km/h (85 mi/h) and you are stopped by an airbag that inflates from the dashboard, over what distance must the airbag stop you for you to survive the crash?
i am asking for help, i just went as far as converting the km/hr to m/s, and got stuck.
