A car has an engine which delivers a constant power. It accelerates from rest at time t = 0, and at t = t0 its acceleration is a0. What is its acceleration at t = 2t0? Ignore energy loss due to friction.

constant power meaning, constant force acting .. so i guess acceleration remains unchanged?!

.nope. got the answer :) P = FV = ma*at = ma^2 t . therefore m(a0)^2t = m(x)^2 (2t) solve for x which is the acceleration at 2t. answer is a0/sqrt(2). mission achieved :) intuitively, acceleration needs to be negative, else the engine would go one forever.

go on accelerating forever that is. it needs to reach a "carrying capacity"

um...i know. and no P does not increase. yes. and it should then be =ma dv/dt. why did you repost?
