Homework Help: Physics/Calculus

Posted by Sarah on Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 9:01am.

An automobile with a mass of 1316 kg is parked on a moving flatbed railcar; the flatbed is 1.5 m above the ground. The railcar has a mass of 40,810 kg and is moving to the right at a constant speed v = 8.8 m/s on a frictionless rail. The automobile then accelerates to the left, leaving the railcar at a speed of 22 m/s with respect to the ground. When the automobile lands, what is the distance D between it and the left end of the railcar? See the figure.
