## Homework Statement

On a level road with its brakes on, the shortest distance in which a car traveling with 80 km/hr can stop is 95 m. This shortest distance occurs when the driver uses anti-lock brakes which means that that the car brakes without skidding.

I found the deceleration to be 2.599 m/s

^{2}

I need to find the coefficient of friction between the tires and the pavement.

## Homework Equations

I'm not completely sure.

F=ma?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know how to solve this problem without mass. My only guess would be to find two equations and set them equal to mass in order to cancel it. I can't seem to find two equations, so perhaps there's another way? Any help would be great. Thanks again.
