A person who is properly constrained by an over-the shoulder seat belt has a good chance of surviving a car collision if the deceleration does not exceed about 30 "g"s (1.0 g= 9.8m/s^2)


Assumind uniform deceleration of this calue calculate the distance over which the front end of the car must be designed to collapse if a crash brings the car to rest from 60 km/h.
