Physics Help please?

With brakes fully applied, a 1240 kg car deccelerates from a speed of 86.0 km/hr. What is the work done by the braking force in bringing the car to a stop?

What is the change in the kinetic energy of the car?


I keep trying and it saying my answers are wrong can anyone help?

You need to show your work so we can see what mistake you're making.

It's possible to solve the question using the Work-Energy theorem. You've pretty much solved it in your post without noticing.

You aren't asked for the force or the distance, just the work done in bringing the car to a halt, and that's straightforward.
