Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Tim on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at 9:06pm.

You are the designer of a school bus and would like to know what the maximum stopping distance is that will ensure the students to remain in their seats. The coefficient of static friction for the passenger and the bus seat is .5, and the coefficient of kinetic friction for the passenger and the bus seat is .3. The typical velocity of the bus while it makes its round is 16 m/s. In order to find a safe stopping distance, you must first determine the maximum stopping acceleration where the children remain in their seats. Then, determine the maximum stopping distance for the school bus. Then, describe what would happen if during a head on collision, the bus comes to a stop in a much shorter distance then the maximum stopping distance calculated. Lastly, describe what would happen to the passengers and how you could prevent this from happening?
