Problem: A car traveling at 30 m/s runs out of gas while traveling up a 5 degree slope. How far will it coast before starting to roll back down?

FREE Expert Solution

Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations:

 vf = v0 +atx= (vf+v02)tx= v0t+12at2 vf2= v02 +2ax

We'll need a standard coordinate system. The y-axis points upward while the x-xis is directed horizontally.
