Group Title
A car weighing 1400kg accelerates from 90 km/hr to 110 km/hr in 6.0s.
a) assuming no friction, what was the power output of the car?
b) If a frictional force of 700 N acted on the car over a distance of 400 m during the same 6.0second acceleration, what would be the power output of the car if the same speed increase was observed?

You have the mass and two velocities. So calculate the kinetic energy before and after acceleration.

Multiply by 1000 and divide by 3600?

For b) " 700 N acted on the car over a distance of 400 m" Just remember that work = force * distance that will tell you how much energy was taken away
