(a) The stopping distance of a vehicle is made up of two parts, the thinking distance and the braking distance. (i) What is meant by thinking distance? () (ii) State two facts that affect thinking distance. 2 (2) (b) A car is travelling at a speed of 20 m/s when the driver applies the brakes. The car decelerates at a constant rate and stops. (i) The mass of the car and driver is 600 kg. Calculate the kinetic energy of the car and driver befe the brakes are applied. Use the crect equation from the Physics Equations Sheet.

This type of car is often fitted with a regenerative braking system. A regenerative braking system not only slows a car down but at the same time causes a generat to charge the car s battery. State and explain the benefit of a hybrid car being fitted with a regenerative braking system. (3) (Total 4 marks) Page 3 of 32 Q2.
