A 1830-kg car is traveling with a speed of 19.8 m/s. What is the magnitude of the horizontal net force that is required to bring the car to a halt in a distance of 63.1 m? Not sure about the equation to use for this queation.

A car traveling at 20 miles/hour stops in a distance of 15 feet when its brakes are locked. Assuming that the frictional force doesn't depend on speed, that same car traveling at 60 miles/hour will stop in a distance closest to a. 15 feet b. 45 feet c. 90 feet d. 135 feet My ...

1. a car traveling on a dry road with a velocity of +32.0m/s. The driver slams on the breaks and skids to a halt with an acceleration of -8.00m/s^2. on an icy road the car would have skidded to a halt with an acceleration of -3.00m/s^2. how much further would the car have ...
