A car breaks on an icy road. At a point, the car's brakes apply a force before the car skids. 


Would this be calculating the coefficient of static or kinetic friction?

Since the car is already in motion, this would use the kinetic coefficient of friction. It also makes intuitive sense: moving or walking on ice makes it easier to slip than when you're standing still.
