A person who is properly constrained by an over-the-shoulder seat belt has a good chance of surviving a car collision if the deceleration does not exceed 30 "g's" (1.00 g = 9.80 m/s^2). Assuming uniform deceleration at this rate, calculate the distance over which the front end of the car must be designed to collapse if a crash brings the car to rest from 100km/h.
I'm not sure how to get this problem started, any help would be greatly appreciated.
