Hello all, new to the forums.. I am absolutely stuck on this problem for my physics tonight. It's dealing with acceleration, so here it is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A driver of a car going 100.0 km/h suddenly sees the lights of a barrier 36.0 m ahead. It takes the driver 0.95 s before he applies the brakes, and the average acceleration during braking is -10.0 m/s^2.

What is the maximum speed at which the car could be moving and not hit the barrier 36.0 m ahead? Assume the acceleration rate doesn't change.

Your help is appreciated!
