I need help with acceleration/displacment, mainly how far something moves during a acceleratopn period
Alright, right now i am learning about velocity and acceletarion and i have a question/problem i need help with.
I know the formula for acceleration and stuff, but how do you find out how far the an object. in this case a car moved during the breaking period?
This is the exact question:
A driver of a car traveling at 15 m/s applies the breaks, causing a uniform acceleration of -2.0 m/s^2. how long does it take the car to accelerate to a final speed of 10.0 m/s? How far has the car moved druing the breaking period?
