Question Description

I need support with this Physics question so I can learn better.

A driver with 0.80s reaction time applies the breaks causing car to have 7.0 m/s^2 acceleration opposite direction of motion. if car is initially at 21 m/s how far does car travel during reaction time? how far does car travel while skidding to stop?

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

Given,

u=21 m/s

a=-7.0m/s2

Distance travelled before brakes are applied=u*reaction time=21*0.8=16.8m

Distance covered after application of brake be s.

v2-u2=2as

02-212=2*7*s

s=31.5m

Total distance=31.5+16.8=48.3m
