1. average speed during stop = 15 m/s
time to stop = 30/15 = 2 seconds
a =change in speed/change in time= -30/2=-15 m/s^2

2. speed cannot be taken by equations
By average speed 30+0 /2 = 15 m/s
time taken= dis/speed = 30/15=2 seconds
deaccleration = change in speed / time = -30/2 = -15m/s^2

Thank you
