FrictionThe driver of a bus travelling with a speed v suddenly observes a wall in front of his bus at a distance a Father of this driver who was also a driver had advised him to take a circular turn to avoid hitting in such a situation However the driver in question decides otherwise by using his own wisdom He applies brakes as hard as possible without taking a circular turn then 1 he is more likely to hit the wall 2 he is less likely to hit the wall 3 he is as likely to hit the wall 4 none of the above
