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
