Kinetic friction problem

  1. Feb 9, 2010 #1
    On a level road with its brakes on, a car traveling at 98 km/hr stops within 91 m when the brakes lock and the car slides.
    What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires and the pavement?

    how would you solve this problem?

    Hint: First solve for the acceleration.
