A car that weighs 15,000 N is initially moving at 60km/hr when the brakes are applied. The car is brought to a stop in 30m. Assuming the force applied by the brakes is constant, determine the magnitude of the braking force.

Most of us know intuitively that in a head-on collision between a large dump truck and a subcompact car, you are better off being in the truck than in the car. Why is this? Many people imagine that the collision force exerted on the car is much greater than that experienced by...
