If the locomotive can exert a constant pull

of 4.9 × 105 N, how long would it take to

increase the speed of the train from rest to

71.9 km/h? Disregard friction.

**Henry**, Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7:46pma=F/m=4.9*10^5 / 3.1*10^7=0.0158 m/s^2.

V = 71.9km/h = 71900m/3600s = 20 m/s.

t = (V-Vo)/a = (20-0)/0.0158 = 1265.8 s.

= 21 min.
