1. Show that the minimum stopping distance for a car travelling at speed v is equal to v^2 / 2*coefficient of friction*g, where the coefficient of static friction is between tires and the road and g is acceleration due to gravity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can re-arrange the equation Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2ad to look the same as the above equation, since a = *coefficient of friction*g

Is that all this question is asking for? seems like I'm missing something here

thanks.
