1. (a) A car traveling at a speed of v can brake to an emergency stop in a distance x. Assuming all other driving conditions arte all similar, if traveling speed of the car doubles, the stopping distance will be (1) √2x, or (2) 2x, or (3) 4x: (b) a driver traveling at 40.0 km/h in a school zone can brake to an emergency stop in 3.00 m. What would be the braking distance if the car were traveling at 60.0 km/h?
