Question

# A jetliner, traveling northward, is landing with a speed of 69 m/s. Once the jet touches down, it has 750 m of runway in which to reduce its speed to 6.1 m/s. Compute the average acceleration (magnitude and direction) of the plane during landing.

1 of 6

The plane's starting and the final velocity are:

$v_0=69\,\text{m/s}\\ v=6.1\,\text{m/s}$

and the distance is:

$x=750\,\text{m}$

We have to calculate the average acceleration of the plane.
