Homework Statement



Using the equations from question 1 determine how long it will take the rabbit to come to a complete momentary stop.

Homework Equations



X= 30cm + (-40 cm/s)t + (24 cm/s^2)t^2

V= (-40cm/s) + (12 cm/s^2)t

V^2= (-40 cm/2)^2 + 2(12 cm/s^2)[X-30cm]

The Attempt at a Solution



I have attempted to work this using the middle equation and come up with an answer of 3.33 seconds for the rabbit to stop. However, the entire length of travel of the rabbit is 3.4 sec. Need help finding what I am missing. thanks

Can you give some more details about what the first question was? Like numbers and stuff

The answer you have is correct. But what do you mean by "the entire length of travel"?

The entire graph spans from 0 to around 3.4 seconds of travel time.

Hmm, weird. But it is a difference of 0,07. Are you sure it's significant?
