At an accident scene on a level road, investigators measure a car's skid mark to be 93 m long. It was a rainy day and the coefficient of friction was estimated to be 0.35. Use these data to determine the speed of the car when the driver slammed on (and locked) the brakes. Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units

    u = 25 m/s

    Explanation:

    given,

    length of skid = 93 m

    coefficient of friction = 0.35

    final velocity = 0 m/s

    initial velocity = ?

    force here is friction f = μ mg

    F = ma

    now com paring

    -μ mg = m a

    a = - μ g

    a = - 0.35 x 9.8

    a = - 3.43 m/s²

    we know,

    v² = u² + 2 a s

    0 = u² - 2 x 3.43 x 93

    u² = 637.98

    u = 25.26 m/s

    u = 25 m/s (two significant figure)
