Technically, the question ought to state that acceleration is uniform. Do you know the SUVAT equations?

A) asks for the magnitude and direction of an acceleration. Your proposed answer is a speed. If you meant 20m/s2 then I don't think that is right (and you still have not specified a direction). Please post the equations you applied and show your working.

For b), what equation connects acceleration with force? (And it's braking force, not breaking force. Nothing gets broken in the process.)
