Dear Student


Initial speed of the train, u= 90 km/h = 25 m/s (1km/hr = 5/18 m/s)
Final speed of the train, v = 0 (finally the train comes to rest and its velocity becomes 0)
Acceleration = - 0.5 m s-2
According to third equation of motion:
v2= u2+ 2 as
(0)2= (25)2+ 2 ( - 0.5) s
Where, s is the distance covered by the train
S= 25^2
= 625m
2 (0.5)
The train will cover a distance of 625 m before coming to rest.​

Thanks
