1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Suppose that a seat-belted mother riding in an automobile holds a 10 kg baby in her arms. the automobile crashes and decelerates from 50km/h to 0 in .1 s. what average force would the mother have to exert on the baby to hold it?? do you think she can do this? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think that you would use the elastic collision equation to solve this but i'm not entirely sure... i'm not very good at solving problems where you convert different equations into something else.
