Physics

A plane traveling at 200.0 km/h attempts to land on a 250 m runway. The plane’s engines and brakes accelerate uniformly at –7.0 m/s2. Will the plane be able to land safely? Show all your work. Include any equations used, including the given and the unknown. Show all calculations. Express numerical answers with the correct number of significant digits. Remember to carry one or two extra decimal places throughout your calculations; do not round until the end.
