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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For 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
