Given that I stand behind or in front of a car and someone will move the car from within at approximately 1 M.P.H., how much force is needed to stop the force driven by the engine to put the car at rest?
Someone gave a random guess that it's a 1 lb. per pound of car force. In other words, exactly the car's weight in force multiplied by the totality of miles per hour. Sounded a little too simple for me.
How does this figure?
This is not any homework assignment; this is just me randomly wondering, because I've stood behind cars reversing slowly and no amount of force I've ever observed can stop a car (from humans) even going at the slowest rate possible. I don't know how to get a sufficient answer, so I can't offer much.
