# An automobile vehicle has a mass of 1500 kg, what must be the force between the vehicle and road if the vehicle is to be stopped with a negative acceleration of 1.7 m s^{-2}?

Answer :

Given,

Mass of vehicle, *m* = 1500 kg

Acceleration, *a* = - 1.7 m/s^{2}

We know that,

Force, F = m × a

F = 1500 × (-1.7)

F = - 2550 N

Here, the negative sign shows that the force acts in a direction opposite to the direction of motion.

Rate this question :

How long will it take a force of 10 N to stop a mass of 2.5 kg which is moving at 20 m/s?
