Solution:
QUESTION: 14

The correlation between the speed of an automobile and the distance travelled by it after applying the brakes is

Solution:

The correct option is Option C.

When brakes are applied to a moving vehicle, the distance it travels before stopping is called stopping distance. It is an important factor for road safety and depends on the initial velocity (v0) and the braking capacity, or deceleration, -a  that is caused by the braking.
