[SOLVED] work and energy problem 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The first part asks A car (m = 890.0 kg) travelling on a level road at 27.0 m/s (60.5 mph) can stop, locking its wheels, in a distance of 60.0 m (196.9 ft). Find the size of the horizontal force which the car applies on the road while stopping on the road. First solve this problem using work/energy concepts and then check your answer using kinematics/force law concepts. I solved this by finding the acceleration and plugging into formula F=ma=5402N The second part asks Find the stopping distance of that same car when it is traveling up a 18.9deg slope, and it locks its wheels while traveling at 27.0 m/s (60.5 mph). Assume that muk does not depend on the speed. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution[/b I drew a free body diagram and came up with the following relationships F-fk-mgsin(18.9)=ma where F=5402N N-mgcos(18.9)=0 How do I solve for the horizontal distance? Is it just the vertical component of the Force?
