Homework Help: Physics question, fairly simple for smarties out there :P

  1. Oct 19, 2009 #1
    Using the largest value of μ to solve the following problem. A 750kg car travels with an initial velocity of 25.0m/s on a surface with a coefficient of friction of ___. After a certain distance you come to rest.

    a. You come to rest, what was the stopping force?
    b. How long were you traveling before you came to rest?
    c. What distance did you travel before you stopped?

    Arghgh. I know this is a simple problem but I feel like I don't have enough information to solve, and I'm not sure what the problem means by the "largest value of μ". Thanks for any help.
