Car Stopping Distance on a Tabletop
Haugland, Ole Anton
Physics Teacher, v51 n5 p268 May 2013
Stopping distances in car braking can be an intriguing topic in physics teaching. It illustrates some basic principles of physics, and sheds valuable light on students' attitude towards aggressive driving. Due to safety considerations, it can be difficult to make experiments with actual car braking. (Contains 2 figures.)
