A car traveling at 60 mi/h stops in 6 seconds. How far does it travel during this time?
The Attempt at a Solution
First I changed units into the standard ones:
60 mi/h *1609.34 m/1 mi * 1 h/3600 s = 26.8223 (the 3 seemed to be repeating.)
Then I used a=Δv/Δt, assuming the Vinitial was zero:
Finally, I plugged my numbers into this equation:
and got 80.46 m.
Would someone please check that this is correct?
