Car A is moving at a constant speed of 10.0 m/s and passes Car B which is at rest. 10 seconds after, the latter follows with an acceleration of 0.5 m/s2. Determine the distance that the latter has to travel before it overtakes the former. does it require quadratic formula? Oh ...

The diagram below shows the speed time graph for a train travelling between two stations. The train starts from rest and accelerates uniformly for 150 seconds. It then travels at a constant speed for 300 seconds and finally decelerates uniformly for 200 seconds. Fig. Given ...

a car is traveling 20.0 m/s when the driver sees a child standing in the road. he takes 0.80 seconds to react, then steps on the brakes and slows at -7.0 m/s squared. how far does the car go before it stops?

**Mechanics**

a driver of a 1200-kg car notices that the car slows from 20 m/s to 15 m/s as it coasts a distance of 130 m along level ground. How large a force opposes the motion? Show the solution

**Physics**

A car is traveling along a straight road at a velocity of +31.0 m/s when its engine cuts out. For the next ten seconds, the car slows down further, and its average acceleration is a1. For the next five seconds, the car slows down further, and its average acceleration is a2. ...
