Police find skid marks 66 m long on the highway showing where the car made an emergency stop. Assuming that the acceleration was -10 m/s2 (about the maximum for dry pavement), how fast was the car going?

    The police can determine the speed a car was traveling from the length of the skid marks it leaves. The function they use is S = f(L) = 2sqrt(5L) where S is speed (mph) and L is the length of the skid marks (feet) (a) If skid
