A freight train has a mass of 1.8 × 10
7
kg.
If the locomotive can exert a constant pull
of 6.2×10
5
N, how long does it take to increase
the speed of the train from rest to 70 km/h?
Answer in units of min.

  • physics! - ,

    F = m a
    6.2 * 10^5 = 1.8 * 10^7 a

    a = (6.2/1.8)10^-2 m/s^2

    v = a t

    now what is v
    70,000 m/3600 s = 19.4 m/s
    so
    t = (19.4 * 1.8 /6.2 )* 10^2 seconds
