Concept #1: Solving Motion Problems with Forces

Practice: An 800-kg car is traveling along a horizontal road directly towards a cliff. The driver notices and brakes, resulting in a 5,000-N net force slowing the car down. If the car's initial speed was 20 m/s and the car stops just before going over the cliff, how far away was the car from the cliff when the driver hit the brakes?
