Jennifer, who has a mass of 3.87 kg, is riding at 5.5 m/s in her red sports car when she must suddenly slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a deer crossing the road. She strikes the air bag, that brings her body to a stop in 9.33 s?

    @mark-c-7 Mark C. @stephlovw It won’t affect the physics, but the data seems odd too - most people who drive have a mass of more than 3.87 kg and an airbag is a pretty brutal (but relatively safe) way to stop someone ... that normally takes considerably less than 9.33 s. Could you check the numbers too?

    @mrphysik MetaPhysik A 9-lb girl should be allowed to drive sporty car, not to mention slam braking speed from 5.5 m/s to zero won't activate the air bag. A prank question that should be deleted.
