Decelleration

In a braking test, a vehicle that travels at 51 km/h stops in 5 s. What is the acceleration?

Correct answer:

a =  -2.8333 m/s2

Step-by-step explanation:

v1=51 km/h m/s=51/3.6  m/s=14.16667 m/s v2=0 m/s t=5 s  a=ΔvΔt  a=v2v1t=014.16675=176=2.8333 m/s2



We will be pleased if You send us any improvements to this math problem. Thank you!
