The brakes on a parked car fall and it accelerates at a constant rate, rolling into a lamp post down the hill. the car reaches a velocity of 4.3m/s by the time it smashes into the lamp post. The time between the brakes failing and the smashing of the car is 3.7s. A. what is ...

An 855 kg dragster accelerates from rest to 120 km/h in 0.90 seconds. What is the average force exerted on the car? I used the regular f=ma which is f=855*(120-0/.9) which equalled 114000 but that answer is wrong. I don't know another formula am i supposed to add in the ...
