Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would use this one\[v^2=v_0^2+2ad\]you have final and initial velocity and the distance. now solve for acceleration. also write down the kinematic equations. you'll need it for the class you're in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also you'll need to do some conversion because you have speed in miles per hour and you have a distance of meters. so convert one of the two to either SI or Imperial units.
