Mass of the automobile vehicle, m = 1500 kg
Final velocity, v = 0 (finally the automobile stops)
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.
