1. speed = 92 mi/hr * 1 hr/3600 s * 621 m/mi
= 15.9 m/s

average speed = 15.9/2 = 7.9 m/s

time to stop = distance/speed = .15/7.9 = .0189 second

force * time = change of momentum

803 * .0189 = m (15.9 - 0)

m = .955 kg

2. speed = 92 mi/hr * 1 hr/3600 s * 1610 m/mi
= 41.1 m/s

average speed = 41.1/2 = 20.6 m/s

time to stop = distance/speed = .15/20.6 = .0073 second

force * time = change of momentum

803 * .0073 = m (41.1 - 0)

m = .142 kg
