A boxcar of mass 200 tons at rest becomes uncoupled on a 2.5 degree grade. If the track is considered to be frictionless, what speed does the boxcar have after 10 seconds?

    First compute the acceleration. It will be a = g * sin 2.5

    Then compute how far it travels after 10 seconds. X = (1/2) a t^2
