| Given: V0 (speed before braking) = 15 m / s; t (deceleration duration) = 10 s; a (acceleration of a given train) = 0.5 m / s2.

The desired path that a given train will pass in 10 s of braking is calculated by the formula (slow motion): S = V0 * t – 0.5 * a * t ^ 2.

Calculation: S = 15 * 10 – 0.5 * 0.5 * 10 ^ 2 = 150 – 25 = 125 m.

Answer: In 10 seconds of braking, the given train covered a distance of 125 m.
