A man, driving his car at 28 m/s, saw a child crossing the road in front of him. Given that the man’s response time was 0.6 seconds and that after he struck the brakes, the car decelerated uniformly at a rate of 10 m/s2 until it stopped, find the total stopping distance of the car.
A cyclist, riding down a hill from rest, was accelerating at a rate of 0.5 m/s2. By the time he reached the bottom of the hill, he was traveling at 1.5 m/s. He continued traveling at this speed for another 9.5 seconds. Determine the total distance that the cyclist covered.
A body was moving in a straight line accelerating uniformly. If it covered 55 meters in the first 4 seconds and 57 meters in the next 4 seconds, determine the total distance that it covered in the first 10 seconds of its motion.
