7. The normal reaction time for a human to respond to stimuli is around 0.60 seconds. A
person driving a car is going 25.5 m/s at a constant speed when all of a sudden a deer
jumps out onto the road. The person slams on his brakes and it takes 4.70 seconds to
come to a complete stop. How far did the car travel once the driver saw the deer?
