**drwls**, Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 4:01amYou can only make this calculation if you assume that the car is "coasting" in neutral with zero friction. These are rather unrealistic assumptions for driving a car.

I suggest you make these assumptions anyway use conservation of energy to predict the speeds.
