Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Shaila on Monday, October 4, 2010 at 8:41am.

A car with mass of 1875kg is traveling along a country road when the driver sees a deer dart out onto the road. The driver slams on the brakes manages to stop before hitting the deer. The driver of a second car with 2135kg is driving too close and does not see the deer. When the driver realizes that the car ahead is stopping, he hits the brakes but is unable to stop. The cars lock together and skid another 4.58m. All of the motion is along a straight line. If the coefficient of friction between the dry concrete and rubber tires is 0.750, what was the speed of the second car when it hit the stopped car?
