Assuming that it takes 0.10 s for the driver to react before applying the brakes, what is the stopping distance (the distance from the point where the driver first sees the need to stop to the point where the car comes to a stop) for a car traveling at 25 m/s if the ...

The braking distance of a car is 29m. If the speed of the car is increased by 45%, what is the car's new braking distance? Assume the acceleration of the car is constant and independent of its initial speed

**Maths**

The braking distance of a car is directly proportional to te square of it's speed. When the speed is p metres per second, the braking distance is 6m. When the speed is increased by 300%, find (a) an expression for speed of the car (b) the braking distance (c) the % increase in...

A car starts from rest and travels for t1 seconds with a uniform acceleration a1. The driver then applies the brakes, causing a uniform acceleration a2. If the brakes are applied for t2 seconds, determine the following. Answers are in terms of the variables a1, a2, t1, and t2...
