1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A truck that is skidding out of control has its initial velocity halved. How will this effect the total displacement of the skidding truck, vs the amount of displacement if the truck were at its original velocity 2. Relevant equations displacement= Vi(t)+1/2AT^2 Vi=initial velocity.... A=acceleration...T=time 3. The attempt at a solution I believe that the result would be around less than half the displacement. My reasoning is that the total time to stop would be less, because there is less of a velocity, and also that since the velocity is lower, that the truck would be covering less distance throughout the whole time..... maybe 1/3 or around that as a ballpark guess.
