Unformatted text preview: for the Delorean timetravel machine, that quickly slows the car down so that it doesn’t make a timejump. The physics state that when the emergency shutdown is applied to the car going at a speed of 88 miles an hour it must stop within 1 20 of a mile. To save cost they don’t want to make the braking system better than it has to be. Given this what is the optimum acceleration (or deceleration) that ensures the car won’t make a time jump? Note that acceleration is the derivative of velocity, and velocity is the derivative of the position function. 1...
