Solution Summary

The solution calculates power, maximum speed, work done, average force when a car accelerates from rest.

Solution Preview

a) Weight=mg= 10000 Newtons
g= 9.81 m/s^2
Therefore mass= 1019.37 Kg

Force=ma= 2120.29

Change inKE when the car is travelling at a speed of 25 m/s= 318553.125 Joules
=1/2 m V^2 -0 as the initial spped is ...
