a car moving at 15 meters per second skids to a stop in 20 meters. if the car travels at 45 meters per second, how far will it skid, assuming the same constant braking force

• physics -

The skid distance is proportional to the square of the initial velocity.

The initial velocity is tripled. What happens to the square of velocity?
