Physics- Braking and Braking Distance

HideShow resource information

1. What is the equation for stopping distance?

  • Stopping Distance= Braking Distance/ Thinking distance
  • Stopping Distance= Thinking Distance- Braking distance
  • Stopping distance= Thinking distance + Braking Distance
  • Stopping Distance= Braking Distance x Thinking Distance
