    Why a runner's acceleration cannot exceed 10μms^-2?. where μ is the coefficient of friction between her shoes and the track. The highest speed that a runner can keep during 800 m race is 8 ms^-1. Show that the fastest time she can hope to achieve by standing start is (100+ 2/5μ )

    That first Part of working is the time taken to accelerate to the maximum speed of 8ms^-1. The other part right by it is the amount of distance covered whilst accelerating. beneath that I have shown the time taken to cover the rest of the 800m (800 - previous answer.) The final part combines the two times and cancels it down.

    I think it's fine for now, seeing as OP isn't getting any help otherwise. But in future please don't post full solutions as we prefer to help the OP get there him/herself

    Thanks!
