A 1500 kg car moves along a horizontal road

at speed v0 = 21.9 m/s. The road is wet,

so the static friction coeﬃcient between the

tires and the road is only µs = 0.302 and

the kinetic friction coeﬃcient is even lower,

µk = 0.2114.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2

Assume: No aerodynamic forces; g =

9.8 m/s^2

Forward is the positive direction.

What is the highest possible deceleration of

the car under such conditions?

Answer in units of m/s^2
