    Hard Kinematics Question-

    Thanks Doc Al.. i checked with my physics teacher and that is what he said! :). And for #2.. i added all distances (crosswalk + car + distance travelled by car) and divided them by v1 (speeds at which cars usually travel). Would that measure how long a yellow light will be on? And I cant get...

    Hard Kinematics Question-

    I actually got 30m for the first question. I dont understand the 2nd question. For the first one, I found time by v2-v1/ a= t. I added 1s to the answer due to reaction time. V2 is 0.. v1 is 13.9m/s (50 km/h). I then substituted my findings into the equation d= v1 t + 1/2 a t ^2. Which led me to...
