4) An aircraft has a landing velocity of 50 ms-1 and decelerates uniformly at 10 ms-2 to rest . Calculate:
(a) the time taken to slow down to this velocity
(b) the distance covered during the deceleration

  • physics -

    formulas you can use:
    vf=vi+at a is given as -10m/s^2
    solve for time

    Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad solve for distance.
