If 7.00hp are required to drive a 1500-kg automobile at 66.0 km/h on a level road. What power is necessary to drive the car at 66.0 km/h down a 1.00 % grade? It requires 42.9 hp to drive the car at 66.0 km/h up a 10.0 % grade (a hill rising 10.0 m vertically in 100.0 m horizontally)? The total retarding force due to friction, air resistance, and so on is 285 N.

3. Then why the question mark at the end?

Assume 35.9 extra hp is needed to provide the potential energy increase at that speed and 10% positive slope. At 1/10 the slope (1%) downwards, 3.6 hp is recovered from gravity, so the engine needs to provide only 3.4 hp.
