a 25,ooo kilogram train is traveling down a track at 20 meters per second. a cow wanders onto the tracks 75 meters ahead of the train, causing the conductor to slam on the brakes. the train skids to a stop. if the brakes can provide 62,500 newtons of friction, will the conductor have enough stopping distance to avoid striking the cow.
