Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Wednesday, December 5, 2007 at 4:16pm.

A 850.0-kg car travelling on a level road at 27.0 m/s (60.5 mi/hr) can stop, locking its wheels, in a distance of 61.0 m (200.1 ft).
(a) Find the size of the horizontal force which the car applies on the road while stopping.
(b) Find the stopping distance of that same car when it is traveling up a 18.1 deg slope, and it locks its wheels while traveling at 34.7 m/s (77.7 mi/hr). Assume that muk does not depend on the speed.

This is making no sense to me. Can I please have some help?
