A freight train has a mass of 1.4 107 kg. If the locomotive can exert a constant pull of 8.1 105 N, how long does it take to increase the speed of the train from rest to 66 km/h?

  • physics - ,

    F = = ma,
    a = F/m = 8.1*10^5 / 1.4*10^7 = 0.058m/s^2.

    Vf = 66km/h * 1000m/km * (1/3600)h/s =
    18.33m/s.

    t = (Vf - Vo) / a,
    t = (18.33 - 0) / 0.058 = 316s.

  • physics - ,

    124.2 s
