The mass of a sports car is 1100 kg. The shape of the car is such that the aerodynamic drag coefficient is 0.240 and the frontal area is 2.40 m2. Neglecting all other sources of friction, calculate the initial acceleration of the car ,if it has been traveling at 105 km/h and is now shifted into neutral and is allowed to coast. (Take the density of air to be 1.295 kg/m2.)
