Assuming you are driving down the highway at 65 mph(28.9 m/s), how far would you travel between the time you saw the need for an emergency stop and actually started lifting your foot off the accelerator? (This does not include the additional time needed to move your foot over to the brakes and stop the car.)

Thanks~

distance = reaction time * speed

note: this is assuming that you're travelling at a constant speed while your foot is pressing on the accelerator

Wouldn't I need the reaction time to do that? All they gave me was the speed.

isn't it 65 / 28.9?

65mile/h * 28.9m/s = 1878.5 milemeter/hoursecond.
Yes, thats totally a unit of distance.
