At the end of a race a runner decelerates from a velocity of 7.00 m/s at a rate of 0.500 m/s2.
(a) How far does she travel in the next 14.0 s in meters?

  • Physics -

    distance= vi*14-1/2 .5 14^2

  • Physics -

    wait what??? i don't understand the equation??

  • Physics -

    vi times 14 second
    1/2 times 1/2 times 14 times 14

  • Physics -

    its wrong....i got 147 for what you said but it doesnt work

  • Physics -

    Exactly. You can't just throw equations out there and expect people to understand. That's the reason why we're here, is because we DON'T understand. SO, can you please simplify this problem a little more?
