Answer:Acceleration,

Explanation:Given that,

Initial speed of a car, u = 45 km/h = 12.5 m/s

Final speed, v = 0 (as they comes to rest)

Distance, d = 18 m

We need to find the acceleration of the breaking car. Using third equation of motion as follows :

So, the acceleration of the braking car is .
