a) Let u be the initial velocity of the body and v be the final velocity of the body. The body is accelerated uniformly with which is represented by a. The time taken is t. Therefore, the equation v = u + at.

Acceleration = change in velocity/time taken

a = (v-u)/t

at = v – u

v = u + at

b) Initial velocity, u = 54 km/h = 15 m/s

Final velocity, v = 0 m/s

Time, t = 8s

Acceleration, a = ?

a = (v-u)/t = -1.87 \mathrm{m/s^2}
