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
The braking efficiency of a passenger car is required to stop at 12.5 m at an initial speed of 40 km/h. What is the acceleration braking by brakes?
- Train speed
The train speed is decreased during 50 sec from 72 km/h to 36 km/h. Assuming that the train movement is equally slowing, find the the acceleration and the distance that it travels at.
- Car overtaking
A passenger car travels at a speed of 30 m/s, and before it travels freight truck that drives at a constant speed of 10 m/s. Within 30 meters of the truck, the driver of the car finds out that the truck can not overtake. That's why it starts braking with
- Braking distance
The car travels at an average speed of 12 km/h and detects an obstacle 10 m in front of it. At 1 m in front of the obstacle it already runs 2 km/h. What is the braking distance? What is the required deceleration for stop in: A) 1m B) 1s?
- Train 2
The train slowed down from 90 km/h to 72 km/h in 5 seconds. How long track travel?
The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance from the location where you need to start to brake.
- Brakes of a car
For the brakes of a passenger car to be effective, it is prescribed that a car moving on a horizontal road at a speed of 40 km. A car must stop on the track 15.4 m. What is the deceleration of the car?
- Car driver
The car driver is in town A and is scheduled to be in town B at a specified hour. If it travels at an average speed of 50km/h, it will arrive in city B 30 minutes later. But if he travels at an average speed of 70km/h, he would arrive half an hour earlier
- Cars motion
From point A car start at the speed of 90 km/h. Against it departs from the point B at the same time another car at 60 km/h. For how long and where they met if the distance between A and B is 180 km?

- Two cities
The car goes from city A to city B at an average speed of 70 km/h, back at an average speed of 50 km/h. If it goes to B and back at an average speed of 60 km/h, the whole ride would take 8 minutes less. What is the distance between cities A and B?
