## Answers ( )

Force = -91.7 Newton

Explanation:

Given the following data;

Mass = 47 kg

Time = 4.1 seconds

Initial velocity = 8 m/s

Since the object comes to a stop, its final velocity would be equal to zero.

To find the force required to bring it to stop;

First of all, we would determine the acceleration of the object;

Mathematically, acceleration is given by the equation;

Substituting into the equation;

Acceleration, a = -1.95 m/s²

Next, we would determine the force required to bring the object to stop;

Force = -91.65 ≈ 91.7 Newton
