2. What is stopping distance?

  • The time from the driver pushing the breaks and the breaks working
  • The overall time it took for a car to completely come to a halt
  • The overall distance it takes for a car to completely stop-from when the driver noticed they should stop and did
  • The distance it took from the driver pushing the brakes and the brakes working

3. 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

4. How does a vehicle slow down?

  • Increasing the resistant forces and decreasing the push from the engine
  • Decreasing the push from the engine and decreasing the resistant force.
  • Increasing the push from the engine and decreasing the resistant force
  • Increasing the resistant force and increasing the push from the engine

5. Which of these has a negative affect on Thinking distance?

  • The condition of the tires
  • Alcohol, drug use
  • The quality of the brakes
  • Decreasing speed
