A 1100kg car starts from rest, accelerates for 5 seconds. The magnitude of acceleration is (a)= 4.6m/s2. find the average power generated by the net force that accelerates the vehicle? what do i do here

i know that F=ma= 1100x4.6=5060=F and

Wnet = 1/2mvf2-1/2mvi2 since it starts from rest Vi= 0

so 1/2mvf2 =(1/2)(1100)(4.6?)=11638 im a doing this right if not can someone tell me what to do?

No.

What is the final velocity?

vf= at= 4.6*5 m/s

What is the KE gained?

1/2 m vf^2 (no initial KE)

Work it took to provide this KE is equal to the KE.

Power= work/time= KE/time

VF=23m/s

KE=290,950

Power=58,190

is this correct?

thanx natali
