Car crash

On the road, with a maximum permitted speed of 60 km/h, there was a car crash. From the length of the vehicle's braking distance, which was 40 m, the police investigated whether the driver did not exceed that speed. What is the conclusion of the police, assuming a decelerated motion of the vehicle with a deceleration of 5 m/s2

Result

s =  27.778 m

To solve this example are needed these knowledge from mathematics:

Do you want to convert length units?

Next similar examples:

1. Gravitation
From the top of the 80m high tower, the body is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 15 m/s. At what time and at what distance from the foot of the tower does the body hit the horizontal surface of the Earth? (use g = 10 ms-2)
2. Traffic collision
When investigating a traffic accident, it was found that the driver stopped the vehicle immediately after the accident by constant braking on a 150 m track in 15 seconds. Do you approve that the driver exceeded the permitted speed (50 km/h) in the village.
3. Bomber
The aircraft flies at an altitude of 4100 m above the ground at speed 777 km/h. At what horizontal distance from the point B should be release any body from the aircraft body to fall into point B? (g = 9.81 m/s2)
4. Aircraft nose down
How long will fall airliner from a height of 10000 m at speed 1,000 km/h?
5. Collision
The two bodies, whose initial distance is 240 m, move evenly against each other consistently. The first body has an initial velocity of 4 m/s and an acceleration of 3 m/s2, the second body has an initial speed of 6 m/s and an acceleration of 2 m/s2. Find
6. G forces
Calculate deceleration of car (as multiple of gravitational acceleration g = 9.81 m/s2) which occurs when a car in a frontal collision slows down uniformly from a speed 111 km/h to 0 km/h in 1.2 meters trajectory.
7. Free fall
How long does the stone fall freely into a depth of 80m? What speed will it hit the bottom of the abyss?
8. Abyss
Stone was pushed into the abyss: 2 seconds after we heard hitting the bottom. How deep is the abyss (neglecting air resistance)? (gravitational acceleration g = 9.81 m/s2 and the speed of sound in air v = 343 m/s)
9. Wave parameters
Calculate the speed of a wave if the frequency is 336 Hz and the wavelength is 10 m.
10. Free fall
The free fall body has gone 10m in the last 0.5s. Find the body speed at the moment of impact.
11. Wavelength
Calculate the wavelength of the tone frequency 11 kHz if the sound travels at speeds of 343 m/s.
12. Train 2
The train slowed down from 90 km/h to 72 km/h in 5 seconds. How long track travel?
13. Walkers
Walker, which makes 120 steps per minute, make distance from point A to point B for 55 minutes. The length of his step is 75cm. For how long does this distance go boy who will do 110 steps 60 cm long in a minute?
14. Theorem prove
We want to prove the sentense: If the natural number n is divisible by six, then n is divisible by three. From what assumption we started?
