## Homework Equations

15. How much work do the brakes do?

2.15 x 105 J

1.42 x 106 J

2.50 x 106 J

7.12 x 105 J

16. What average force do the brakes apply?

2.50 x 104 N

7.12 x 103 N

2.15 x 103 N

1.42 x 104 N

17. How much distance would the car cover as it stops if the speed were doubled? Assume that the average braking force remains constant.

400 m

100 m

200 m

800 m

18. If the car originally stops in 6.2 s (100 m), what power is developed by the brakes?

23.4 kW

2.15 kW
