Question

A vehicle of mass 2000 kg has a constant resistance to motion of 3000 N. The maximum speed of the vehicle, when travelling on a horizontal road, is 120 km/hour. Find the acceleration of the car when it is travelling at a speed of 50 km/hour up a hill inclined at an angle of 3o to the horizontal, with the engine operating at maximum power (as sume the resistance to motion remains unchanged whether the car is travelling uphill or horizonally #### Earn Coins

a 1800 kg car experiences a combined force of air resistance and friction that has the same magnitude whether the car goes up or down a hill at 24 m/s. going up a hill, the cars engine produces 44 hp more power to sustain the constant velocity than it does going down the same hill. At what angle is the hill inclined above the horizontal?

The electric vehicle Tesla Model S has a drag coefficient of 0.24, a mass of 2100 kg, and a frontal area of 2.4 m2. The coefficient of rolling resistance of its tires is 0.01. Recall the density of air at sea level is 1.3 kg/m3. How much kinetic energy is required to overcome rolling resistance and air resistance (drag) at Autobahn speeds of 180 km/hr for a 200 km trip? How much useful energy (in MJ) and money (in...

• ### A car of mass 1200kg pulls a trailer of mass of 400kg along a straight horizontal road. The car and trailer are connected by a tow-rope modelled as a light inextensible rod. The engine of the car provides a constant driving force of 3200N. (see ? below)

The horizontal resistances of the car and the trailer are proportional to their respective masses. Given that the acceleration of the car and trailer is 0.4ms-2, a) find the resistance to motion on the trailer b) find the tension in the tow-rope When the car and trailer are travelling at 25ms-1 the tow-rope breaks. Assuming the resistances to motion are unchanged, c) find the distance the trailer travels before coming to a stop
