  1. F=MA----(1)
    where F=force=5000N
    M=mass of car
    A=acceleration

    1st)calculate acceleration.
    A=speed/time-------(2)
    (dont forget to convert speed into m/s)

    2nd) replace A in (1), and solve for M :)

  2. a. V = 93.3km/h = 93,300m/3600s = 25.92 m/s

    a=(V-Vo)/t = (25.92-0)/4.1 = 6.32 m/s^2.

    m = F/a = 5000/6.32 = 791.1 kg.

    b. m*g = 791.1kg * 9.8N/kg = 7753 N. =
    Wt. of car.
