Hi,

I am trying to work out what force you would need to push a four wheel vehicle of mass 200kg from rest to a top speed of 2m/s (acceleration 1m/s2) and the force needed to maintain that top speed . I am not sure how to go about this, do i just consider rolling resistance and take that as 0.01...does static friction come in somewhere?

thanks!
