    \[v _{f}^{2}=v _{i}^{2}+2ax=1600\frac{ m ^{2} }{ s ^{2} }=100\frac{ m ^{2} }{ s ^{2} }+2a125m \rightarrow a=\frac{ 1600\frac{ m ^{2} }{ s ^{2} }-100\frac{ m ^{2} }{ s ^{2} } }{ 2 \times 125m }\]Since \[a=\frac{ v _{f}-v _{i} }{ t }\]Then\[t=\frac{ (40\frac{ m }{ s }-10\frac{ m }{ s })125m2 }{ 1600\frac{ m ^{^{2}} }{ s ^{2} }-100\frac{ m ^{2} }{ s ^{2} } }=5s\]
