Consider two cars one a chevy, one a Ford. The Chevy is speeding along at 50m/s (mph) and the Ford is going half the speed at 30m/s. If the two cars brake to a stop with the same constant acceleration, are either the amount of time required to come to a stop, or the distance traveled prior to stopping influenced by their initial velocity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't really understand the concept of what the question is asking. And no this is not a Homework question.
