Freight trains can produce only relatively small accelerations and decelerations. (a) What is the final velocity of a freight train that accelerates at a rate of 0.0500 m/s2 for 8.00 min, starting with an initial velocity of 4.00 m/s? (b) If the train can slow down at a rate of 0.550 m/s2 , how long will it take to come to a stop from this velocity? (c) How far will it travel in each case?

Step-by-step solution 29PE Step 1 of 8 Use he kinematics equation, Therefore, Here is the final speed, is the initial speed, is the acceleration and is the time.
