In a test safety restraint a test car slowed from 50m/s to rest in a time of 0.4seconds (a) what was the acceleration (b) How far did the car travel

To get acceleration, we need to use the relation " v = u+a×t ", where v is the final speed which is zero in this case,
a is acceleration and t is time to bring the vechile from initial speed u to rest.
hence, 0 = 50 + a×0.4 or a = - 50/0.4 = - 125 m/s2
Formula to be used to get distance S travelled " v2 = u2+ 2aS "
hence, 0 = 50×50 - 2×125×S or S = (50×50)/(2×125) = 10 m
