The algebraic relation d= 0.0056s2 +0.14s models the relation between a vehicle's stopping distance d, in metres and its speed s, in km/h.

a) What is the fastest you could drive and still be able to stop within 80m?
b) What is the stopping distance for a car traveling at 120 km/h?

  • Math -

    Online "^" is used to indicate and exponent, e.g., x^2 = x squared. I assume only the s value is squared.

    a. 80 = 0.0056(s^2) +0.14s

    b. d= 0.0056(120^2) +0.14(120)

    Solve for the unknown.
