The minimum stopping distance for a car traveling at a speed of 30 m/s is 60 m, including the distance traveled during the drivers reaction time of 0.560 s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is the min. stopping distance for the same car traveling at a speed of 38.0 m/s?

tried to use this equation v^2 - u^2 = 2 a s

but then didnt know what to do.
