The driver of a 1750 kg car traveling on a horizontal road at 110 km/h suddenly applies the brakes. Due to a slippery pavement, the friction of the road on the tires of the car, which is what slows down the car, is 25% of the weight of the car.

2. Relevant equations

(a) What is the acceleration of the car?

(b) How many meters does it travel before

stopping under these conditions?

3. The attempt at a solution

I keep getting -2.7m/s^2 and i cannot figure out the correct way to do it.
