A body is coasting to a stop and the only force acting on it is a resistance proportional to its speed, according to the equation:
; s(0)=0, where is the body's initial velocity (in m/s), is its final velocity, m is its mass, k is a constant, and t is time.
(a) If a body with mass m = 50 kg and k = 1.5 kg/sec initially has a velocity of 30 m/s, how long, to the nearest second, will it take to slow to 1 m/s?
(b) How far, to the nearest 10 meters, will the body coast during the time takes to slow from 30 m/s to 1 m/s?
(c) If the body coasts from 30 m/s to a stop, how far will it coast?
