A 1500 kg automobile travels at a speed of 105 km/h along a straight concrete highway. Faced with an emergency situation, the driver jams on the brakes, and the car skids to a stop.
(a) What will be the car's stopping distance for dry pavement (µ = 0.85)?
(b) What will be the car's stopping distance for wet pavement (µ = 0.60)?
so for this problem, do you use kinematic equations?
