Physics Homework  

Here it is :)

                        a.) V = d/t
                        b.) V = vf + vi
                        c.) V = vf - vi
                        d.) d = [ vf + vi ] t
                        e.)  d = vit + ½ at2
HOMEWORK (Due on friday)

      1. Rachel wants to go outside but there is a thunderstorm. She sees the flash of lightning bolt and begins counting the seconds until she hears the clap of thunder 5.0 seconds later. She knows that the speed of sound in air is 340 m/s. How far away is the lightning?
      2. Albert is riding his scooter at a velocity of 80 km/ hr, when he sees an old woman crossing the road 45 m away. He immediately steps hard on the brakes to get the maximum deceleration of 7.5 m/s2. How far will he go before stopping? Will he hit the old woman?
      3. A driver traveling at 70 km/h tries to stop the car and finds that    the brakes have failed. The emergency brake is then pulled and the car comes to a stop in 120 m. Find the car’s deceleration.

Oh dear. I remember this stuff from school... unfortunately, I decided to shut my brain off after school let out.

I can't do math at all. :(

You've already taken this up?? Gasp. I'm a senior and this is the first (or is it third? i forget x) time we're doing this.

You must be really smart. Haha!

Yeah, I was in advanced math classes and stuff, we started learning this kind of material, but it's not like I've mastered it.

Haha, I'm not that smart. It's all my parents' fault, they've made me have perfect grades since kindergarten. (But I guess it'll pay off once I get to college.)
