## a-higbee 2 years ago who's ready to help me with a deer in the road question?

• This Question is Closed
1. a-higbee

You are driving down the highway late one night at 20 m/s when a deer steps onto the road 35 m in front of you. Your reaction time before stepping on the brakes is 0.50 s , and the maximum deceleration of your car is 10 m/s2 . How much distance is between you and the deer when you come to a stop?

2. a-higbee

You found the distance that you will cover while braking. You can use the expected amount of time for braking to check your answer for distance. Using the information given in the introduction and the value for distance that you found above, determine the time required for you to stop once you press the brakes. Note that the time for braking is just the time interval t3−t2. Express your answer in seconds.
