A 1100 kg car coasts on a horizontal road with a speed of 19 m/s. After crossing a an unpaved, sandy stretch of road 32 m long, its speed decreases to 12 m/s. (a) Was the net force done on the car positive, negative, or zero? Explain (b) Find the magnitude of the average net force on the car in the sandy section.
