A jet plane lands with a velocity of 101 meters/second and can accelerate at -5.1 meters/second2 when coming to a rest.

a) Once it hits the runway, how long till it stops?

b) Can this plane land on Gilligan’s Island if its runway is 0.80 x 109 μ meters long?



2. Homework Equations

v = v0 + at
x − x0 = (1/2)(v0 + v)t
x = x0 + v0t + (1/2)at^2



3. The Attempt at a Solution

I have no idea how to do this problem. I have had one physics class. Sorry guys. Your help would be great
