The power driving the railroad engine is switched off. The engine stops, from its speed of 16m/s^-1, without braking in a distance of 1.1km. A student hypothesis that the horizontal resistive force is constant. Based on the hypothesis, calculate the mass of the railway engine.
Teacher didn't provide any relevant equations but i assume F=ma and vf^2-vi^2=2ad are important
The Attempt at a Solution
First i tried to find
I think the next step would be to find net force to plug all my variables into F=ma to find mass. I know net force is the total force on an object but I'm not sure how to find net force from my given variables.
