A freight train has a mass of 1.2 × 107 kg. If the locomotive can exert a constant pull of 5.0 × 105 N, how long would it take to increase the speed of the train from rest to
89.2 km/h? (Disregard friction.) Answer in units of s.

  • Physics - ,

    The acceleration rate with that force acting is
    a = F/m = 0.0417 m/s^2

    89.2 km/h = 24.78 m/s is the speed you with to attain.

    Solve this equation for the required time, t:

    (1/2) a t^2 = 24.78 m/s
