when brakes are applied to a bus, the retardation produced is 25 cm s^-2 and the bus takes 20 second to stop calculate the initial velocity of the bus and the distance travelled by bus during this time

Expert Answer:

a = 25 cm/s2 
v = 0
t = 20 s 
v = u + at 
0 = u + (-25) x (20) 
u = 500 cm/s 
Initial velocity, u = 500 cm/s 
 
s = ut + (1/2) at2 
s = (500) (20) + (1/2)  (-25) (20)2 
s = 10000 + (-5000)
s = 5000 cm = 50 metres
Distance travelled by bus after applying brakes is 50 metres.
