Car A starts from rest at t = 0 and travels along a straight road with a constant acceleration of 2 m/s2 until it reaches a speed of 27 m/s. Afterwards it maintains this speed. Also, when t = 0, car B located 2000 m down the road is traveling towards A at a constant speed of ...

A mechanic pushes a 2.50 x 10^3 kg car from the rest to a speed of v, doing 5000J of work in the process. During this time, the car moves 25.0 m. Neglecting friction between car and road, find (a) v and (b) the horizontal force exerted on the car.

A car is stopped at a traffic light. It then travels along a straight road so that its distance from the light is given by x(t) = bt2 – ct3, where b = 2.40m/s2 and c = 0.120m/s3. (a) Calculate the average velocity of the car for the time interval t = 0 to t = 10.0 s. (b) ...

Seatbelts provide two main advantages in a car accident: (i) they keep you from being thrown from the car, and (ii) they reduce the force that acts on you during the collision to survivable levels. The second benefit can be illustrated by comparing the net force exerted on the...

A 2000-kg car rounds a circular turn of a radius 20m. if the radius flat and the coefficient of friction between tires and road is .70, how fast can the car go without skidding? centripetal force = frictional force m v^2/r= mg*mu solve for v. um i was wondering..do i need to ...

A 1200-kg car going 30 m/s applies its brakes and skids to rest. If the friction force between the sliding tires and the pavement is 6000 N, how far does the car skid before coming to rest? Can you help me get the formula to use . Thanks
