1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
An automobile driver travelling down an 8% grade slams on his breaks and skids 26 m until hitting a car... 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I have no idea what a 8% grade is. I am guessing it is a slope, but how much? Thanks for any help I am stumped.
