26. We take + x in the direction of motion, so v 0 = +24.6 m/s and a = – 4.92 m/s 2 . We also take x 0 = 0. (a) The time to come to a halt is found using Eq. 2-11: 0 2 24.6m/s 05 . 0 0 s 4.92m/s . va t t =+ ¡ == (b) Although several of the equations in Table 2-1 will yield the result, we choose Eq. 2-16 (since it does not depend on our answer to part (a)).
