A bicycle and rider with the mass of 112kg traveling 10m/s puts on the brake and skids to a stop. The coefficient of the sliding friction ?
between rubber tires and wet pavement is 0.21.
Draw a free-body diagram showing all forces acting on the bike while it is skidding. Include the size and direction of the car's acceleration.
I need some additional help. Thank you to anyone who can help me with this in detail. I'm very much confused.
How would I figure out acceleration?

YA doesn't have a graphics option.
Draw the bike and rider. Force of gravity acting down = mass of bike + rider * g. Force from the pavement acting up is the same.
Frictional force from the braking is opposite to the direction of travel = mass of bike + rider * g * 0.21
