  1. Dec 2, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A robot submersible is released from a research vessel. Through computer controls the craft is to execute the following sequence: a)a = 3.188i − 3.608j m/s2 for 23 s, b) maintain its velocity (no acceleration) for another 2.59 min, and c) come to a full stop. How far from the vessel will it be located?

    a. 19008i - 21008j m
    b. 9408i - 11008j m
    c.10008i + 12008j m
    d. 10008i - 12008j m

    2. Relevant equations

    vf^2 = v0^2 +2ax
    Not sure about any others.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    No idea where to start
