    What is the relationship between the speed of the car and the distance each car takes to stop?

Act Two

  • ImageSpeed1
  • ImageSpeed2
  • ImageSpeed3
  • ImageSpeed4
  • In North America, the width of angled and perpendicular parking spaces usually ranges from 2.3 to 2.75 metres (7.5 to 9.0 ft). (Source: Wikipedia)

Act Three

  • ImageChart
  • Teacher note
    I'm not really pleased with the third act I have for this task. I'd prefer an overlay video of the four cars driving, with some text information about the distance each traveled, and perhaps an animation of the attached graph being generated. Unfortunately, I don't have the time (nor the video editing software) to produce this myself.
