## yankeeez one year ago A car slows down from 22 m/s to rest in a distance of 83 m. What was its acceleration, assumed constant?

1. Data_LG2

use one of the five kinematics equation $$v_f^2=v_i^2+2ad$$ solving for $$a$$ will give you: $$a=\frac{v_f^2-v_i^2}{2d}$$ in your case $$v_f=0,\ v_i=22\, d=83$$
