Question #37135

A 1600 kg car moves along a horizontal road
at speed v0 = 17.3 m/s. The road is wet,
so the static friction coefficient between the
tires and the road is only μs = 0.311 and
the kinetic friction coefficient is even lower,
μk = 0.2177.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . Assume: No aerodynamic forces; g =
9.8 m/s2, forward is the positive direction.
What is the highest possible deceleration of
the car under such conditions?
Answer in units of m/s2
