Car with mass 940kg is moving at speed 48km/h. How much force do you need to stop it in 15m distance?

first of all find the retardation $(48)^2=2*a*D$ and $a=\frac{ (48)^2 }{ 2*15 }=76.8m/s^2$ now F=m*a F=940*76.8 N @duck123 you are done

I'm trying to figure out where 2*a*d part is coming from

$V^2=U^2-2a*D$ V is final velocity which is zero and U is = 48 i have taken -a because it is retardation hope that helps
