Physics 101- Introduction to Mechanics
January 30- Constant Acceleration Motion

 

 

 

 
 

 

  Since you are an expert in physics, you end up being called into court as an expert for a case related to a multi-car pile up on the 405.  The main issue that the lawyers are interested in is knowing how fast one car was going before the accident.  The car left a 75m long skid mark before coming to a stop (just short of another car).  Given the road conditions (dry road, free of any substances), you know that the maximum acceleration would be 6.5m/s2.
