Driving 50 miles per hour (mph), calculate how many feet it will take you to stop your vehicle.

Stopping Distance = Reaction Distance + Braking Distance

Braking Distance = | Speed^{2} |

20 |

Braking Distance = | 50^{2} |

20 |

Braking Distance = | 2500 |

20 |

Braking Distance = 125

Stopping Distance = 50 + 125

Stopping Distance =

Therefore, if you are driving 50 mph, it will take you approximately 175 feet to stop your car.
