Homework Help: physics

Posted by Katie on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 1:28pm.

a) A set of crash tests consists of running a test car moving at a speed of 12.6 m/s (27.7 m/h) into a solid wall. Strapped securely in an advanced seat belt system, a 69.0 kg (151.8 lbs) dummy is found to move a distance of 0.600 m from the moment the car touches the wall to the time the car is stopped. Calculate the size of the average force which acts on the dummy during that time.

b) Using the direction of motion as positive direction, calculate the average acceleration of the dummy during that time (in g's) (use 1g=9.8 m/s2).

The answer to a is 9129 J but I am not sure of b
