##### Reference no: EM13298929

At the end of an amusement park ride, you want the gondola to stop without the acceleration exceeding 2 g's. If the total mass of the gondola and occupants is 2,288 kg, what is the maximum allowed braking force? (The answer is a positive braking force, not a negative force).
