Answer:## The stopping distance is 36.15m

Explanation:In this exercise we are going to apply the second equation of motion to model the situation

Given data

time in seconds= 4.6 seconds

speed v= 11 m/s

deacceleration a= 8.2m/s

Substituting this values into the expression for distance we have

## The stopping distance is 36.15m
