Answer:4.4

Explanation:i got it correct

Answer:4.4 seconds

Explanation:use the equation

v(final)=v(initial)+a(t)

what we know:

v(initial)=28mps

v(final)=0 because it comes to a stop

a= -6.4 it is negative because the 6.4 is resisting forward motion

using these you get

0= 28 + (-6.4)t

6.4(t)=28

t=4.375 sec

and with rounding

t=4.4 sec
