Hi all, my first post on forums.
How do i, ie what is the forumla, to calculate braking distance, for example; If i had a question says, a 600kg car, traveling 30ms1, and comes to rest in 10s after braking. What is the average braking force? How would i go about calculating it? Any help is welcomed thanks all

Are you familiar with the kinematic equations? Which ones would you use to relate force, mass and distance?

[How do i, ie what is the forumla, to calculate the force act on the particle eg; A particle of mass 0.01 kg is moving with avelocity 10 ms1 on a smooth surface. A force 6 N acts on the particles such that its velocity increases to 15 m s1. How would i go about calculating it?
Any help is welcomed thanks all[/QUOTE] Thank you.
