The Energy Equivalent Speed Scrubbed shown is the starting speed that would result in this skid mark length and the vehicle coming to a dead stop at the end. It is NOT the speed scrubbed during the skid but, rather, the energy transformed and expressed as a speed.

For example, had you entered a starting speed of 20.63 mph, then the skid mark would be 36 feet long and the vehicle would come to a complete stop at the end of that skid (Ending Speed would be 0 mph). The Energy Equivalent Speed is not affected by starting speed. In reality, all that changes by increasing or decreasing starting speed is the amount of time it takes to make that skid mark and transform the energy represented by the Energy Equivalent Speed.

If you enter a skid length that is longer than is possible given your other inputs, the model will show errors as output.
