| BACK|                        MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION CALCULATORS

Motor Vehicles accidents are functions of velocity, reaction time and road drag co-efficient/drag factor. If 80 pounds of force is needed to drag a 100 pound sled, the drag factor = .8. Gravity  dictates how far a launched object, like a bycyclist, flies before landing. Our gravitational constant is usually expressed as 32.2.  Miles per hour are often converted into feet per second  50 Miles per Hour = about 75 feet per second. Reaction time = time to perceive a threat and react. 50% less than 1.04 sec 90% less than 1.27
