The table below shows how the braking distance x for a car depends on its initial speed u
u / ms-1 5.0 10 20 4
x / m 2.0 8.0 32 128
the reaction time of a driver is 0.60s. Calculate the sopping distance of the car when u= 30ms-1.
The mark scheme says:
Thinking distance= 30 X 0.6 =18m which I understand fully.
BRAKING DISTANCE =0.08 * U^2= 0.08 * 30^2= 72m IS THE BIT I DON’T UNDERSTAND. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPALIN THE BRAKING DISTANCE STAGE AND WHY AND HOW YOU DO THIS BIT AS WELL AS ALL EQUATIONS INVOLVED!
Stopping distance= 18 +72= 90m which I understand fully.

please help.
