Calculate the force needed to bring a 1070–kg car to rest from a speed of 89.0 km/h in a distance of 110 m (a fairly typical distance for a non-panic stop).
Suppose instead the car hits a concrete abutment at full speed and is brought to a stop in 2.34 m. Calculate the force exerted on the car and compare it with the force found in part (a).
