A track of mass 1000 kg travelling on a straight level road accelerates from a speed of 10 m/s to a speed of 30 m/s in 12 seconds. Given that the engine of the track exerts a constant pull of magnitude P N and that there is a constant resistance to motion of 200 N, find the value of P.

  • Math -

    v changed from 10 to 30 in 12 sec.
    So, the acceleration

    a = 20/12 = 5/3 m/s^2

    F = ma = 1000*5/3 = 1667 N
    That is the net force, and since there is an opposing force of 200N,

    P = 1667+200 = 1867 N
