A corvette can go from 0~60 mph in 4.3 seconds. If the mass of the car is 1443 kg how much work is required to complete this task (assuming it is on a horizontal road)?

  1. (1/2) m v^2/ time
    once again
    now try some yourself please.

  2. Oh, I gave you the power
    the work = energy = (1/2) m v^2

  4. V = 60mi/h * 1600m/mi * 1h/3600s = 26.7 m/s.
    Work = 0.5M*V^2 Joules.
