Physics 12

A human has a reasonable chance of surviving an automobile crash is the body's deceleration is no more than 30 "g's". (1 "g" is 9.8 m/s^2) Calculate the force the body would have withstand decelerating at this rate. What is the distance travelled if the car was initially travelling at 90 km/hr?
