Hi, I am unable to figure this question. Could someone help please ? A new type of race has been proposed. The object of the race is to complete the course and stop on the finish line in the minimum amount of time. The race is exactly 1 km long. The car can accelerate at 8m/s^2 and decelerate at 5m/s^2 when the brakes are applied. What is the best possible time to complete the race?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
