Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations:
Distance covered before stepping on the brake:
Δx1 = v•t = 20 × 0.50 = 10m.
You're driving down the highway late one night when a deer steps onto the road 35 m in front of you. Your reaction time before stepping on the brakes is 0.05 s and the maximum deceleration of your car is 10 m/s2.
What is the maximum speed you could have and still not hit the deer?
