    A van travelling at 40mph skies to a halt in a distance of 15m. Find the acceleration of the van and the time taken to stop, assuming the deceleration is uniform and the van travels along a straight line (Assume 1mile=1600m)
    How would you work this out?
    thankyou

    I would turn the 40 mph into m/sec and use SUVAT. Try it and post your working.

    So in an hour 40 mph is the same as 40 x 1600 metres/hour

    so then change into metres/sec
