Calculate the maximum allowable force that can be applied to stop a 1000 kg vehicle if the maximum allowable acceleration is 2.5 g.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Mass, m = 1000 kg

Maximum allowable acceleration, a = 2.5g = 2.5 x 9.8 = 24.5 m/s2.

Step 2

Thus, Maximum allowable force = Mass x Maximum allowable acceleration
