Physics

An automobile weighing 15,000 N crashes into a wall with a velocity of 5.00 m/s. If the car moves 0.150 m before coming to a stop, what average force does the wall exert on the car?

  1. An approximation would be
    force*distance=1/2 m v^2

    However, that is not accurate as much of the energy is absorbed in the wall and car crumpling.
