Mass of the automobile vehicle, m = 1500 kg
Final velocity, v = 0 m/s
Acceleration of the automobile, a = –1.7 ms–2
From Newton's second law of motion:
Force = Mass × Acceleration = 1500 × (–1.7) = –2550 N
Hence, the force between the automobile and the road is –2550 N, in the direction opposite to the motion of the automobile.
