An engine expends 44.0 hp in moving a car along a level track at a speed of 13.9 m/s. How large is the total force acting on the car in the opposite direction of the motion of the car?

  • Physics -

    44.0 hp = 32,824 Joules/s, since there are 746 watts per Hp.

    That equals the friction force x velocity
    Therefore friction force = 32,824/13.9 = 2362 N
