A 250 kg car starting from rest is pushed 30m. When the car reaches 30m, it’s traveling at a speed of 12m/s and it encounters 52N of friction. What is the acceleration of the car and what is the force of the push on the car?

  • physics -

    During the period it is accelerating without friction, V = sqrt(2 a X)

    Solve for acceleration a.

    The pushing force during that time is
    F = m a

    You have not made it clear at what time you want to know the acceleration, Is it before or after friction is applied?
