Two cars start from rest at a red stop light. When the light turns green, both cars accelerate forward. The blue car accelerates uniformly at a rate of 4.8 m/s2 for 4.5 seconds. It then continues at a constant speed for 9.9 seconds, before applying the brakes such that the car...

The brakes are applied to a car traveling on a dry, level highway. A typical value for the magnitude of the car's acceleration is 4.75 m/s2. If the car's initial speed is 32.1 m/s, how long does it take to stop and how far does it travel, starting from the moment the brakes ...

A car traveling at 72 mph starts braking and decelerates at a constant rate. the car takes 1/9 of a mile to stop. Find, to the nearest half-second, how long it took the car to cover the 1/9 of a mile. I don't need the whole thing done. Just don't know how to start!
