Driving Safety

Transcript: Lou and Butch were traveling along the road when a cow appeared in the road up ahead. If the car came to a stop and the chord length is 144.34 and the middle ordinate is 7, what was the radius(R)? The average driver takes between .75 and 1.5 seconds to switch from the gas pedal to the brake pedal. * There are 5,280 feet in a mile * A car traveling 55 mph covers 55 miles in one hour * A car traveling 55 mph covers 55 miles x 5,280 feet/mile = 290,400 feet in one hour * A car traveling 55 mph covers 290,400 ÷ 60 minutes per hour = 4,480 feet in one minute * A car traveling 55 mph covers 4,480 ÷ 60 seconds per minute = 80.67 feet in one second R = 144.34^2/ 8(7) + 7/2 R = 20834.03/ 56 + 7/2 R = 372.03 + 3.5 R = 375.54 S = √15*f*r R = c^2/8m * m/2 S = Speed F = Drag Factor R = Radius of the arc of the yaw C = Chord length M = Middle ordinate by Molly and Alyssa Problem (Part 1) If Lou noticed the cow was approximately 70 feet in front of them did they stop in time to avoid the cow? Determine their speed if the drag factor is .75 and the radius was 375.54 (round to the nearest whole number) Answer to Part 2 Yawed Skid Mark Current Event #2 S = √15*.75*375.54 S = √4224.825 S = 64.99 GOAL!
