    i used v^2 - u^2 = 2as

    i just need to know what should i take for acceleration or should i ignore it

    Ok....Acceleration is negative since it is slowing down.....

    here v=u/2,and use the equation v^2=u^2-2as

    then u will get accelration

    then finally equate v=0,a=obtained from above and find s!!!

    since here the question asked is "how much more will it penetrate" initial velocity=u/2...

    there fore the equation for finding "s" should be|dw:1359144797548:dw| right

    so i get s=1 cm
