Homework Help: physics hey bob

Posted by anthony on Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 8:53pm.

you help me solve this problem. but how am i suppose to if i dont know the mass of the car?


on a level road the stopping distance for an automobile is 35.0m for an initail speed of 90 km/hr what is the stopping distance of the same automobile on a simalr road with the slope 1:10

Assume the coefficent of friction is the same.

F=mu*Normal force=ma
a= normalforce*mu/mass

Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad
solve for mu on the level road, knowing normalforce is mg.

Then, knowingmu, look at the slope
normal force=mg*SinTheta
Vf^2=Vi^2+2mgSinTheta*mu/m * d
solve for distance.

since Theta is a small angle, SinTheta=TanTheta= 1/10
