Answer:

m = 3 kg

The mass m is 3 kg

Explanation:

From the equations of motion;

s = 0.5(u+v)t

Making t thr subject of formula;

t = 2s/(u+v)

t = time taken

s = distance travelled during deceleration = 62.5 m

u = initial speed = 25 m/s

v = final velocity = 0

Substituting the given values;

t = (2×62.5)/(25+0)

t = 5

Since, t = 5 the acceleration during this period is;

acceleration a = ∆v/t = (v-u)/t

a = (25)/5

a = 5 m/s^2

Force F = mass × acceleration

F = ma

Making m the subject of formula;

m = F/a

net force F = 15.0N

Substituting the values

m = 15/5

m = 3 kg

The mass m is 3 kg
