Non-Uniform Deceleration of a Vehicle

by Tae Kim


Submitted : Fall 2016

For calculating the distance a car will have to travel to come to a stop when given the speed the car is traveling and the deceleration of the brakes we can first make all the units the same, which then will allow us to use the first fundamental theorem of calculus to integrate the function of acceleration within the boundaries of 0-t.  The distance required to stop was concluded to be 57.275m however with more research information was found that due to decelerations being non-uniform many variation may occur.
