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 30ms-1, 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 braking distance,
for example; If i had a question says, a 1500kg car, traveling 30ms-1, and comes to rest over a distance 40m after braking. What is the average braking force?

How would I go about calculating it?

Please help me?

[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 ms-1 on a smooth surface. A force 6 N acts on the particles such that its velocity increases to 15 m s-1. How would i go about calculating it?

Thank you.
