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 6.0-second acceleration, what would be the power output of the car if the same speed increase was observed?

    Figure out it's change in kinetic energy.

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

    Power is just going to be energy / time

    kinetic energy is 1/2 mass * velocity^2

    You probably want to convert units to m/s

    Multiply by 1000 and divide by 3600?

    Yes

    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

    so subtract that out and calculate the power again.

    @applesjgtl got it?

    For part a, what value do I use for energy? Is it KE2-KE1?

    @wio, still there?

    For part a) use energy

    then divide the change in energy by time to get power output.
