on a level road the stopping distance for an automobile is 35.0m for an initail speed of 90 km/hr what is the stopping distance of the same automobile on a simalr road with the slope 1:10

• physics -

Assume the coefficent of friction is the same.

F=mu*Normal force=ma
a= normalforce*mu/mass

solve for mu on the level road, knowing normalforce is mg.

Then, knowingmu, look at the slope
normal force=mg*SinTheta
Vf^2=Vi^2+2mgSinTheta*mu/m * d
solve for distance.

since Theta is a small angle, SinTheta=TanTheta= 1/10
