 Travel_Word_Problems/347251: hello everyone.I need your help with my Calculus assignment. It is due today.Please help me.The right equation is,v=-5+30e^-t/2 A truck travelling along a straight section of highway, on a wet evening, braked suddenly to avoild blinky Bill who had wandered onto the road off in the distance.The reducing velocity of the truck under braking,v, in metres per second,is modelled by the equation: v=-5+30e^-t/2 where t is the number of seconds after the brakes were applied.Assume the truck held its line under braking conditions. Questions: a. Find an expression for the distance traveled,s(t) after t seconds. b. Sketch a grapgh of s(t) over the domain [0,10). c. Discuss the limitation of this function as a model for the distance covered after braking. d. Poor Blinky was 30m down the highway whe the brakes were applied. He was dazzled by the lights of the truck and froze to the spot.Show why our favorite koala was in a spot of bother. e. How fast was the truck going when it struck Blinky? f. What was the minimum distance Blinky could have been standing to avoid contact?1 solutions Answer 248309 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-09-23 16:20:56 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!

 Travel_Word_Problems/347063: hello everyone.I need your help with my Calculus assignment. It is due tomorrow.Please help me. A truck travelling along a straight section of highway, on a wet evening, braked suddenly to avoild blinky Bill who had wandered onto the road off in the distance.The reducing velocity of the truck under braking,v, in metres per second,is modelled by the equation: v=30e^-t/2 -5 where t is the number of seconds after the brakes were applied.Assume the truck held its line under braking conditions. Questions: a. Find an expression for the distance traveled,s(t) after t seconds. b. Sketch a grapgh of s(t) over the domain [0,10). c. Discuss the limitation of this function as a model for the distance covered after braking. d. Poor Blinky was 30m down the highway whe the brakes were applied. He was dazzled by the lights of the truck and froze to the spot.Show why our favorite koala was in a spot of bother. e. How fast was the truck going when it struck Blinky? f. What was the minimum distance Blinky could have been standing to avoid contact? 1 solutions Answer 248195 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-09-23 08:43:54 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I asked a question yesterday but you did not respond.
