Homework Help: Another kind of MOCO

  1. Oct 14, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An automatic guided vehicle is traveling at a speed of 12 ft/sec when it is ordered to stop. It uniformly decelerates to a stop in 18ft
    Determine the average velocity

    2. Relevant equations
    (Initial speed-final speed)/ total time taken = decelerations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    avg velocity of 12 ft/sec/sec is 6
    18/6 = 3
    3x4 = 12
    so the avg velocity is 4 ft/sec/sec

    Welcome to PF!

    Hi ajayespinoza! Welcome to PF! :smile:
    (Is this the first part of a longer question? :confused:)

    Hint: average speed = (Initial speed+final speed) divided by … ? :smile:
