**Calculate the average force**

*F*acting on car## Homework Statement

A car does the work

*W*

_{car}=5.9x10

^{5}J in traveling a distance x=6.3 km (6300 m) at constant speed.

Calculate the

**average force**

*F*(from all sources) acting on the car in this process.

## Homework Equations

Work = Force x Distance = F [tex]\Delta[/tex]x

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since W=F[tex]\Delta[/tex]x

W=F/x

so F=5.9x10^5 J / 6300 m = 3717 N

Which is wrong. Not sure what else i could do. I'm not given any information other than supplied.
