1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You're driving down the highway late one night at 20 m/s when a deer steps onto the road 35 m in front of you. Your reaction time before stepping on the brakes is 0.50 s, and the maximum deceleration of your car is 10 m/s^2. How much distance is between you and the deer when you come to a stop? and What is the maximum speed you could have and not hit the deer? 2. Relevant equations I know we have to use both of these equations- x= x0 + v0t+ 1/2at^2 and v=v0+at 3. The attempt at a solution Reaction time eats up .5 of your seconds, so in the other half of a second, you are now 25 m from the deer. So for you, x=20t+1/2at^2 And then your velocity- v= 20+at Then for the deer, since he's doing nothing, he would be x=25? Because he's not doing anything else but standing 25 feet away? And then his velocity wouldn't exist? So then what would you do to solve this?
