Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions, Segment 3: Forensics.

The distance a car travels even after the brakes are applied can be described through a quadratic function. But there is also the reaction time, the split second before the brakes are applied. The total distance is known as the stopping distance and this segment analyzes the quadratic function. This is an equation that can be used by accident investigators.
