Question #40942

a) A dentistry student is running with a constant acceleration until she reached a max

speed of 5m/s. If she suddenly sees a wall 20 m in front of her, how long will it

take her to come to a complete stop just before she reaches the wall, what was her

acceleration?

b) If the same student decided to check what is behind the wall by stepping 5 meters

back and throwing a rock so that just clears the 2-m high wall. What should be the

initial velocity (magnitude and direction) by which she must throw the rock, so

that it just clears the wall at its max height of trajectory?
