Question

A car is in a drag race where it accelerated from rest at 3m/s^2 until it reaches it maximum velocity. The race is 100m long.

Part A: If the car reaches its maximum velocity after 5 seconds, what is the cars maximum velocity.

Part B: How fat has the car travelled when it reaches it maximum velocity?

Part C: As the race is 100m long, how long does it take for the car to reach the finish line?

Answer #1

**Hence maximum velocity reached after the five seconds is
15m/s**

C) We know,

Displacement,S= ut+1/2 at2

H**ence distance travelled till the maximum velocity
reached is 37.5metre.**

He**nce time to cover 100m is 8.1 seconds**

Problem 3: While playing basketball, a batter hits the ball as
it crosses home plate and gives it an initial velocity of 45m/s and
launches it an angle of 19 degree above the horizontal (x-axis).
The outfield wall is located 115m away from the home plate and is
3m high. The batter hits the ball when it is 1m above home
pate.
Part A: Find the equation describing the position and velocity
of the ball as function of the
Part...

In a quarter-mile drag race, two cars start simultaneously from
rest, and each accelerates at a constant rate until it either
reaches its maximum speed or crosses the finish line. Car A has an
acceleration of 10.6 m/s2 and a maximum speed of 104
m/s. Car B has an acceleration of 11.7 m/s2 and a
maximum speed of 87.5 m/s. (a) Which car wins the
race? (b) By how many seconds does this car win
the race?

A race car starts from rest and travels east along a straight
and level track. First part of the motion the car’s velocity is
given by 13 m/s after which it starts to accelerate. What is the
acceleration of the car if it reaches to a velocity of 46.12 m/s
after 19 s.

A sprinter runs a 100 metre race. He does not move for 0.2
seconds after the starting pistol is fired. Then his velocity
vms-1 increases as v(t) = -0.5t2 + 5t - 0.98
where t is time in seconds. he reaches his maximum speed and
maintains this until he crosses the finish line.
Calculate his time to complete the race.

A rocket rises vertically, from rest, with an acceleration of
3.2 m/s2m/s2 until it runs out of fuel at an altitude of 800 mm .
After this point, its acceleration is that of gravity,
downward.
1) What is the velocity of the rocket when it runs out of
fuel?
2) How long does it take to reach this point?
3) What maximum altitude does the rocket reach?
4) How much time (total) does it take to reach maximum
altitude?
5)...

Two rather unequal cars are competing in a drag race. For
simplicity, let's assume that the accelerations of the cars are
constant. Car 1 has an acceleration of 3.7 m/s2, while
Car 2 has an acceleration of 6.3 m/s2. Car 2 gets off to
a late start, 1.1 seconds after Car 1.
At what time after Car 1 took off will it be overtaken by Car 2?
(in s)
A: 3.0
B: 3.8
C: 4.7
D: 5.9
E: 7.4

A car stating from rest accelerates at 2 m/s2 for 5
seconds. The driver then maintians a steady speed for 12 seoncds.
The car the undergoes an accelration of -2.5m/s2 until
it reaches a speed of 4 m/s. A. what was the speed
of the car after 2 seconds? B. how far did the car
travel during the interval of constant speed? C.
how much time did the car spend slowing down? d.
what was the total distane the car...

a car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly, until it has
traveled 15km and acquired a velocity of 30m/s. the car then moves
at this constant velocity of 30 m/s for 15 minutes. the driver then
applied the brakes and the car stopped after 5 minutes.
find
the acceleration during the last part of the trip: a1=
The acceleration during the last part of the trip: a3=
The total distance traveled during the whole trip: dtot=

A 2000 kg car starts from rest. After 2 seconds, the car is
moving at a velocity of 9 m/s. There is a retarding friction force
of 600N acting on the car. What is the power needed by the car in
order to accelerate from rest to that final velocity?

Two cars start from rest at the same location and at the same
instant and race along a straight track. Car A accelerates at 6.6
f/s^2 to a speed of 90 mph and then runs at this constant speed.
Car B accelerates at 4.4 f/s^2 to a speed of 96 mph and then runs a
constant speed.
(a) Which car will with a 3-mile race and by what distance?
(b) What will be the maximum lead of A over B?...
