Answer:Explanation:Work done by the frictional force is 3.41×10^5 J

It is given that,

Mass of the car, m = 1000 kg

Initial velocity of car, u = 26.1 m/s

Finally, it comes to rest, v = 0

We have to find the work done by the frictional forces. Work done is equal to the change in kinetic energy as per work – energy theorem i.e.

W = −340605 J

or Hence, the correct option is (a).
