Expert Answer:

For the first car:


or 0=15-a(5)

or a=3 ms-2

So using v2-u2=2as

s=(15)2 /6=37.5 m

For the second car:


or 0=5/6 -a(10)

or a=1/12 ms-2

So using v2-u2=2as

s=(5/6)2 /(1/6)=4.16 m


Hence second car travels further after application of brakes.

Plese post other parts of question separately.
