A bicycle and its rider together have a mass of 80 kg. If the bicycle's speed is 6m/s, how much force is needed to bring it to a stop in 4 seconds

  • Physical Science -

    a= F/masstotal

    vf=Vi+at
    0=6+F/80 * 4

    solve for F.

  • Physical Science -

    a=change in vel./time

    6m/s-0m/s divided by 4 sec.

    acc. = 1.5 m/s^2

    F=ma
    F= (80 kg)(1.5m/s^2)
    F=120N

    Hope this helps! :D
