Question

A car is travelling at 20m/s on a horizontal road. The brakes suddenly are applied and the car skids to a stop in 40 s with a constant acceleration.

a) Draw a free body diagram for the car?

b) Write newton's second law in the vector form and project it on the reference system.

c) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires and road?

A car is traveling up a road inclined at an angle Theta above the horizontal. The driver slams on the brakes and skids to a stop. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires and the pavement for the car sliding to a stop is mu_k. Find an expression for the acceleration of the car as it slides to a stop. Using your result above, find the numerical value of the car's acceleration if Theta = 8.0 degree and mu_k...
