Part one:
you are driving at the speed of 26.3 m/s

Part one:
you are driving at the speed of 26.3 m/s
(58.844 mph) when suddenly the car in front
of you (previously traveling at the same
speed) brakes and begins to slow down with
the largest deceleration possible without skidding. considering an average human reaction,
you press your brakes 0.519 s later. you also
brake and decelerate as rapidly as possible
without skidding. assume that the coefficient
of static friction is 0.811 between both cars’
wheels and the road.
the acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s
calculate the acceleration of the car in front
of you when it brakes.
answer in units of m/s^2.

part two: calculate the braking distance for the car in
front of you.
answer in units of m.

part three:
find the minimum safe distance at which you
can follow the car in front of you and avoid
hitting it (in the case of emergency braking
described here).
answer in units of m

Chapter 23, problem 075 the figure shows a geiger counter, a device used to detect ionizing radiation (radiation that causes ionization of atoms). the counter consists of a thin, positively charged central wire surrounded by a concentric, circular, conducting cylindrical shell with an equal negative charge. thus, a strong radial electric field is set up inside the shell. the shell contains a low-pressure inert gas. a particle of radiation entering the device through the shell wall ionizes a few of the gas atoms. the resulting free electrons (e) are drawn to the positive wire. however, the electric field is so intense that, between collisions with gas atoms, the free electrons gain energy sufficient to ionize these atoms also. more free electrons are thereby created, and the process is repeated until the electrons reach the wire. the resulting "avalanche" of electrons is collected by the wire, generating a signal that is used to record the passage of the original particle of radiation. suppose the radius of the central wire is 24 âµm, the inner radius of the shell 2.3 cm, and the length of the shell 14 cm. if the electric field at the shell's inner wall is 2.8 ă— 104 n/c, what is the total positive charge on the central wire?
