Suppose that the coefficient of kinetic friction of the rubber of a car tire and the street is Uk = 0.8. What is the deceleration of the car on a flat street if the driver brakes sharply, so all the wheels are locked and skidding?

  • Physics -

    F=ma
    a=F/m
    =μk*mg/m
    =μk*g
    =0.8*9.8 m/s²
