I that nerd that does those extra problems in the back, the really hard ones, just for the heck of it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Well, there is one that has me really stumped.

Show that the minimum stopping distance for an auto travelling at speed 'V' is equal to '(v^2)/(2Mg)'.

(I use M for the coefficient of static friction)

Maybe I'm just dumb, but I don't know where to start.

Can someone give me a little hint? It's not actually a homework problem, but I literally go CRAZY if I can't solve a problem I try...

Does it maybe have something to do with the basicx equation of 'V^2=V.^2+2ad'?
