## Homework Statement

Speedy sue, driving at 30.0m/s enters a one lane tunnel. She then observes a slow-moving van 155m ahead traveling at 5.00m/s. Sue applied her breaks and accelerates at -2.00 m/s^2. Will there be a collision? If yes, at what distance and what time?

## Homework Equations

initial v = 30 m/s

final v = 0

a = -2/s^2

displacement = [(final velocity - initial velocity) / 2*acceleration)]

## The Attempt at a Solution

By using the above equation, I found out that a crash does occur when Sue stops. However, I do not understand how to find out at exactly what displacement this crash occurs.
