Superman must stop a 120km/h train in 150m to keep it from hitting a stalled car on the tracks.If the train's mass is 3.6x10^5kg,how much force must he exert?Compare to the weight of the train (give as%).How much force does the train exerts on Superman?

1. Vo=120,000m/h * (1/3600)h/s = 33.33m/s.

Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2ad,
a = (Vf^2 - Vo^2) / 2d,
a = (0 - (33.33)^2) / 300,
a = - 3.7m/s.

F = ma = 3.6*10^5 * (-3.7) = -13.3*10^5 = -1.3*10^6N = Force applied
in opposite direction of train's force.
