Homework Help: Physics (please help!!!!)

Posted by Cecille on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 9:49pm.

A car experiences rolling (tractive) friction with coecient of friction mut = 0.0200, and turbulent-flow (bv^2) drag, with drag coefficient CD = 0.300. The car has mass (including
fuel, which is a negligible fraction of the total) M = 1000. kg and frontal cross-sectional area S = 2.00 m^2. The density of air is approximately 1.20 kg/m^3. The heat of combustion
of gasoline is approximately 36.0 MJ per liter, but when thermal and mechanical losses are considered only 20.0 percetn of this is available for the work of propulsion. Calculate the gas mileage (km/liter will do) of this car traveling on a straight, level road at a constant speed
of 30.0 m/s.
