A bicycle and rider of total weight 815 N travel at a speed of 40.0 km/h.
The rider hits the breaks and the bicycle slides to a full stop in a distance of 8.5 m.

Ignore air resistance and use g=9.8 m/s2.

What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires (rubber) and the road (pavement)?
