    1 hr = 3600s.

    Vf = Vo + at,
    Vf = 0 + 0.98*3600 = 3528m/s.

    a. a = (Vf - Vo) / t,
    a = (40 - 0) / 60s = 0.67m/s^2.

    b. t = 15 min. * 60s/min = 900s.
    Vf = Vo + at,
    Vf = = 0 + 0.667 * 900 = 600m/s.

    a. t = (Vf - Vo) / a,
    t = (0 - 30) / -6 = 5s.

    b. d = (Vf^2 - Vo^2) / 2a,
    d = (0 - (30)^2) / -12 = 75m.

    Vf = Vo + at,
    Vo = Vf - at,
    Vo = 0 - (-2.5)*2 = 5m/s.

    d = (Vf^2 - Vo^2) / 2a,
    d = (0 - (5)^2) / -5 = 5m.

    Correction: Disregard the 1st 3 lines,
    and start at "a".
