I used the 2nd formula originally (X=VoT+1/2aT^2) but I wasn't getting anywhere. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do this problem? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Try figuring out the average speed of the truck and see what that tells you.

I found it to be 4.71 m/s but I'm still stuck. Where do I go next?

Good. Now use that to find the initial speed:

[tex]v_{ave} = (v_i + v_f)/2[/tex]

[tex]v_{ave} = (v_i + v_f)/2[/tex]

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.

I got 6.62 m/s for part A and used V=Vo+at to get -.45m/s^2 on part B.

I hope this is correct. I'm pretty sure A is.

Can anyone confirm?
