Ok, that I'll buy. > But the kinetic energy removed is not. Sure it is, in terms of distance traveled. Work is force (which is nearly constant because the coefficient of friction is nearly constant) times distance; the change in kinetic energy is directly proportional to the work done on the car. Or at least that's the way they taught it in my high school Randall ```
