Braking Car with Work

This simulation visualizes a car stopping within a set distance. The car is travelling at an initial velocity with a constant braking force applied to it. The amount of force applied by the brakes, the mass of the car, the initial velocity, and the stopping distance can be adjusted to better understand the effect of a force on a body and the magnitude of work performed.
