A(n) 840-kg dragster accelerates on a race track from rest to 85 km/h in 0.90 seconds.

(a) What is the change in momentum of the dragster?
(b) What is the average force exerted on the dragster?
(c) What exerts that force?

  • physics -

    (a) Multiply m by the change in V. Convert the final speed to m/s first.

    (b) Average force = (momentum change)/time

    (c) The track exerts the force against the tires.

  • physics -

    a) If you did not know before, momentum is equal to mass times velocity, p=mv.

    The others, "drwls", has explained it well enough for you.
