I know acceleration can be found by the following basic equation: A=F/M But my question is can you also find acceleration using power or work? Background: I am doing a project in physics right now that involves taking the torque, weight, and drag of the car and calculating the theoretical 0-60, 1/4, and 1/8 mile times. The problem is cars are rated in horsepower (power) and torque (work.) I don't exactly know how to 1) Break them down to their force properties and solve or 2) make an equation that will solve for acceleration. Can anyone help out?
