Homework Help: Distance covered

  1. Sep 1, 2008 #1
    First, I am not a student. I'm looking to do some modifications to a car and I'm not sure what to do.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    a 2.0 L, 4 cylinder engine w/ 146 hp

    curb weight = 1418 kg

    0-60 mph time of 8.6 s

    0.25 mile time of 16.7 s at a top speed of 81.8 mph

    What distance (miles) would be covered going from 0-47 mph?

    2. Relevant equations

    1 hour = 3600 s
    60 mph = 0.0167 miles/s
    47 mph = 0.013056 miles/s

    3. The attempt at a solution

    where do I go from here?
