A car travelling at a uniform speed of 18 m/s. At time t = 0, the driver sees a child run out in front of the car.

At time t = 0.6 s the driver starts to apply the brakes. The car then decelerates uniformly, taking a further 3.0 s to stop. Calculate the distance travelled in the first 0.6 s of the
