1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If the coefficient of kinetic friction between tires and dry pavement is 0.80, what is the shortest distance in which you can stop a car by locking the brakes when traveling at 28.7 m/s? 2. Relevant equations The problem doesn't state the mass of the car, so I'm not sure how to exactly relate kinetic friction with the acceleration. 3. The attempt at a solution v^2 = 0 + 2a(x - 0) v^2/2a= x a?
