A car traveling at 90 km/h strikes a tree. The front end of the car compresses and the driver comes to rest after traveling 0.86 m. What was the average acceleration in g's of the driver during the collision?
The Attempt at a Solution
The acceleration in m/s/s is -363.37 but I tried dividing by 9.8 and I got -37.05 g's but evidently thats wrong. I'm not sure what I'm missing here, I converted the km/h into m/s/s then got the correct acceleration then devided by 9.81. Is there a rule that I didn't use? Is there a limit on negative gs?
