  1. 72km/hr = 20 m/s (72*1000/3600)
    To find the time it takes for the car to come to a stop, use the equation: v(final)=v(initial) + at
    0=20 - 5t
    t = 4 seconds.

    To find the distance traveled,
    use the equation: x = b + vt + (1/2)at^2, where x is x(final), b is x(initial), v is velocity (initial), t is time (seconds), and a is acceleration.
    x=0+20(4)+(1/2)(-5)4^2
    x=40 m
