Through the Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem, the amount of work done by the air bag on the driver must equal the change in the driver's kinetic energy (the final kinetic energy is 0, the initial KE = m• v²/2)

ΔKE = W,

ΔKE = 0 - m• v²/2 = m• v²/2.

W =F(ave) •s(c).

m• v²/2 = F(ave) •s(c).

F(ave) = m• v²/2• s(c) =

= 60•(27.78)²/2•0.3 = 7.7•10^4 N.
