A taxi driver starts his car from rest and drives at a constant speed of 13.5 m/s along a straight road toward the west. After driving for 10.0 s, the car reaches a sharp turn in the road and now travels in the direction of 53.5° south of west. Immediately after turning, the taxi driver slows down his car at 1.22 m/s2 in order to stop and pick up a passenger. It takes 7.00 s for the car to stop after making the turn. Now, instead of the actual path followed by the taxi, assume that there is a straight road from the starting point to where the taxi driver picked up the passenger. How long would that road be?
