A car is traveling on a level road with speed vo at the instant when the breaks lock, making the tires slide rather than roll (a) Use the Work-Energy Theorem to calculate the minimum stopping distance of the car in terms of vo , g and μk, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the sliding tires and the road. (b) the car stops in a distance of 90 m for vo of 60 km/h. What is the stopping distance if vo is 50 km/h? (Assume μk remains constant).
