A speedboat moving at 30.0 m/s approaches a no-wake buoy marker 100 m ahead. The pilot slows the boat with a constant acceleration of 3.50 m/s2 by reducing the throttle. (a) How long does it take the boat to reach the buoy? (b) What is the velocity of the boat when it reaches the buoy?
Lab 2: Kinematics Members: Samantha Rubin, Marguerite Furlong, Zoe Gaber Table Number: 2 Introduction Kinematics explores the relationship between objects and motion, particularly for this lab, an object in free fall. Velocity and acceleration are mathematically represented with their derivatives in respect to either position or velocity in terms of time: Here, Δx is identified as the initial position of x subtracted from the final position of x, and Δv, is the initial velocity subtracted from the final velocity. When acceleration is constant with respect to time, we can relate the following kinema
