If a car is travelling 80 miles per hour on a slippery road, then its stopping distance D in feet can be calculated by D=(6400/80)*(1/x), where x is teh coefficient of friction between the tires and road and 0<x< or equal to 1.
multiply and simplify the formula for D
and
Compare the stopping distance on an icy road with x=0.2 and on dry pavement with x=0.8.
so
D=?
the stopping distance on an icy road is ?? feet.(round to the nearest whole number as needed)
the stopping distance on dry pavement is?? ft.
When a car is moving at 80 miles per hour, the stopping distance on dry pavement is__ of

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1D = 80/x you are just reducing x=.2 > D = 80*5=400 x=.8 > D=80*(5/4) = 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i already answered that....we are already assuming car is going 80 mph its already factored into equation for D
