Question

A car accelerates uniformly from rest to 17.9 m/s in 6.31 s along a level stretch of road. Ignoring friction, determine the average power required to accelerate the car if (a) the weight of the car is 8.28 x 103 N, and (b) the weight of the car is 1.58 x 104 N.

Answer #1

Here, we have to find power required for two different cases in both cases we have given the weight of the car but other values like velocity and time are same. To calculate energy first we have to find kinetic energy and for kinetic energy, we need mass which is missing in question. Mass is calculated with the help of weight of the car.

Formula's used

1) Power (P)= Energy(E)/Time(t)

2) Energy(E)= 1/2*m*v^2 Where m= mass and v= velocity

3) Force(F)= m*g Where g= Gravitational constant (9.8)

Given

t= 6.31sec

v= 17.9 m/s

(a) Weight of car i.e. Force= 8.28*103N

F=mg

8.28*103=m*9.8

m= 87kg

Now energy

E=1/2m.v^2

E= 1/2*87*(17.9)^2= 13937.8J

Power, P= E/t

P=13937.8/6.31 = 2208.8W

(b )Weight of car i.e. Force= 1.58*104N

F=mg

1.58*104=m*9.8

m= 16.7kg

Now energy

E=1/2m.v^2

E= 1/2*16.7*(17.9)^2= 2675.4J

Power, P= E/t

P=2675.4/6.31 = 423.9W

1.Imagine two balls colliding on a billiard table that is
frictionless. Decide which statement is correct and explain why:(a)
The total momentum of the system that contains only one of the two
balls is the same before and after the collision.(b) The total
momentum of the system that contains both of the two balls is the
same before and after the collision.
2.One object is at rest, and another is moving. The two collide
in one-dimensional, completely inelastic collision. In...

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 car starts from rest and accelerates at a constant rate
travelling a distance of 210 m in 14.9 s. The car continues to
accelerate at the same rate for an additional 199 m. What is the
speed (in m/s) of the car after it has travelled the (210+199)
m?

A race car accelerates uniformly from a speed of 32 m/s to a
speed of 63 m/s in 5.1 s while traveling counterclockwise around a
circular track of radius of 422 m. When the car reaches a speed of
46 m/s, find the magnitude of the total acceleration (centripetal +
tangential acceleration) in m/s2.

m/s2. What is the force exerted by the car on the
trailer?

order to accelerate from rest to that final velocity?
