Hello everyone. I am having a little trouble with this problem and I was wondering if you could give me a hand with it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A car traveling 85 km/h strikes a tree. The front end of the car compresses and the driver comes to rest after traveling 0.80 m. What was the average acceleration of the driver during the collision? Express the answer in terms of "g's," where 1.00 g = 9.80 m/s^2.

V(0)=85 km/h

X(0)=0

V=0

X=.80 m
