Average net force

  1. Sep 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the average net force on a car during a zero to 60mph (0 to 30m/s) acceleration? Compare this force to the weight of the car.

    2. Relevant equations

    I just dont know what equations to do and need help to figure out what to do.

    Hi shiney612, welcome to PF.

    Can you find the acceleration of the car? What equation(s) would you use for that?

    Once you have the acceleration, can you find the force? What equation does that involve?
