Answer:-7500 N

Explanation:v₀ = 108 km/h = 30 m/s

v = 0 m/s

t = 4 s

a = Δv / Δt

a = (0 m/s − 30 m/s) / 4 s

a = -7.5 m/s²

F = ma

F = (1000 kg) (-7.5 m/s²)

F = -7500 N

Answer:-7500

Explanation v₀ = 108 km/h = 30 m/s

v = 0 m/s

t = 4 s

a = Δv / Δt

a = (0 m/s − 30 m/s) / 4 s

a = -7.5 m/s²

F = ma

F = (1000 kg) (-7.5 m/s²)

F = -7500 N
