## Homework Statement

The maximum straight-line deceleration of a racing car under braking is 5 m s-2. What is the minimum stopping distance of the car from a velocity of 108 km h-1?

## Homework Equations

½ V x t

## The Attempt at a Solution

V = 108km/h=30m/s

t = 30/ 5 = 6 m s-2

½ V x t = ½ x 30 x 6 = 90

Answer: Distance = 90 m

___________

I found this formula ½ V x t (to determine stopping distance) on the internet, but im not sure if its correct.

Are there any mistakes?

Thank You
