1. Answer: Explanation: where; = final velocity = 0 = initial velocity = 60 km/h = 16.67 m/s = acceleration = distance

First all of, because acceleration is given in m/s and not km/h, you need to convert 60km/h to m/s. Our conversion factors here are 1km = 1000m and 1h = 3600s Solve for a; Begin by subtracting  Divide by 2d    If you’re wondering why I calculated acceleration first is because in order to find force, we need 2 things: mass and acceleration. m = mass = 900kg

a = acceleration = -2.78m/s It’s negative because the force has to be applied in the opposite direction that the car is moving.
