GIVEN ;-

⇒ Speed of the car = 20 m / s

⇒ Distance of the child from the car when it goes into the road = 50m


TO FIND ;-

⇒  What must the car’s deceleration be if the car is to stop just before it reaches the child?


SOL ;-

⇒ Distance of the child from the car in the road ( S ) = 50 m

⇒ Initial velocity of the car ( u ) = 20 m / s

⇒Final velocity of the car ( v )   = 0 m / s



Now let us find the acceleration using the formula -


                           2 a s = v² - u ²

Here we need to find the acceleration so let us rearrange the formula ,


we get as -                            a = u² - v² / 2 as




                               ⇒  a = v² - u² / 2 s

                               ⇒  a = 0 - 20² / 2 × 50

                               ⇒  a = -  400 / 100 

                               ⇒ a =    -  4 m /s

                           So acceleration is - 4 m / s .
