You are driving 2500 Kg car at a constant speed of 14 m/s along an icy, but stright and lvel road. While approaching a traffic light, it turns red. You slam on the brakes. You wheels lock, the tires begin skidding and the car slides to a halt in a distance of 25 m. What is the coefficient of sliding friction between the tires and the icy road?

Calculations:
m = 2500 Kg
Vi = 14 m/s
Vf = 0 m/s
deltaD = 25 m
a = (vf^2  vi^2)/(2 x deltaD)
= 14 m/s / 50
= 2.8 m/s^2
W = (2500) (9.81)
= 24525 N
Fnet = (2500)(0.28)
= 700 N
I`m not sure what to do after this.
