    Answer: - 7500N

    Explanation:

    Given the following:

    Initial Velocity of car = 108km/hr

    Time taken to stop after applying brakes = 4s

    Mass of passengers in car = 1000kg

    Force exerted by the brakes on the car = ?

    After 4s, then final Velocity (V) = 0

    Initial Velocity (u) of the car = 108km/hr

    108km/hr = (108 * 1000) m : (3600) s = 30m/s

    Force exerted = mass (m) * acceleration (a)

    Acceleration of car = Change in Velocity with time

    a = (v - u) / t

    a = (0 - 30) / 4

    a = - 30 / 4

    a = - 7.5m/s^2

    Therefore,

    Force exerted = mass (m) * acceleration (a)

    Force exerted = 1000kg * (-7.5) m/s^2

    Force exerted = - 7500N
