A car mass of 1330 kg is traveling at 28.0 m/s. The driver applies the brakes to bring the car to a rest over a distance of 79.0 m. Calculate the retarding force.

  • Physics -

    Vo = sqrt(2 a X)
    Solve that for the acceleration, a.
    X = the stopping distance, 79 m

    a = Vo^2/(2X)= 4.96 m/s^2

    Themn use F = M a
