A car is traveling at 60.0mph when it collides with a stonewall. The car comes to rest after the first foot of the car is crushed. What was the average horizontal force acting on a 150lb driver while the car came to rest?
I'm not a hundred percent sure which equations to use but, I searched through questions I've had in the past and found an example however, it deals with distance.
SIGMA F= MA
The Attempt at a Solution
Again, I wasn't quite sure where to even start so, I decided to find acceleration because I thought it might be important with SIGMA F=MA. I've listed the givens which, may or may not be correct.
Vi = 60MPH ---> 88 FT Per Second
Vf = 0 m/s
m = 150lbs
