Question

In severe head-on automobile accidents, a deceleration of 60 g’s or more (1 g 5 32.2 ft/s2) often results in a fatality. What force, in lbf, acts on a child whose mass is 50 lb, when subjected to a deceleration of 60 g’s?

    Answer:

    The resulting force on the child is 3000 lbf

    Explanation:

    To find the force that acts on a child of 50 lb with a deceleration of 60 g’s, we can use the formula:

    Force = mass * acceleration

    To find the force in lbf, we need to use the mass in lb and the acceleration in g (standard unit of gravity).

    So we have that:

    Force = 50 * 60

    Force = 3000 lbf

    So the resulting force on the child is 3000 lbf.
