the action of two forces. One is a forward

force of 1153 N provided by traction between

the wheels and the road. The other is a 939 N resistive force due to various frictional forces.

How far must the car travel for its speed to

reach 2.0 m/s?

Answer in units of m.

First compute the net force acting:

F = 1153 - 939 = 214 N

Then compute the acceleration rate a using

F = m a; a = F/m

Then compute the time t required to reach velocity V:

t = V/a

The distance travelled is

X = (1/2) a t^2
