Braking Force

  1. Sep 20, 2007 #1
    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?

    Force

    [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?

    Any help is welcomed thanks all[/QUOTE]

    Thank you.
