1. An object traveling at a constant speed of 22m/s begins to experience a force of 15N in the opposite direction of its motion. (Hint given: Start by finding objects acceleration)
a. How long will it take for the 8kg object to come to a complete stop once it experiences the force?
b. If the object was traveling in a straight line, how far did the object travel as it slowed down?

a = F / m = 15 / 8 = 1.875m/s^2.
a. Vf = Vo + at,
t = (Vf  Vo) / a,
t = (0  22) / 1.875 = 11.73s.
b. Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2ad,
Solve for d and get:
d = (Vf^2  Vo^2) / 2a,
d = (0  (22)^2) / 3.75 = 129.1m.
