1. Homework Statement
a= 0.3 m / s^{2}
k = 10 000 N / m
m = 1800 kg ( of the car that is being pulled)
Ignore friction.
A car is being pulled by another car by a rope ( stiffness = 10 000 N/m) with acceleration of 0.3 m/s^{2.}. Find the change in length of the rope.
2. Homework Equations
F = ma
F = kx (x is the change in length)
3. The Attempt at a Solution
x = F / k
I am having trouble at finding F. I have made a graph, which I have uploaded here, of the car that is being pulled in this situation and I don't know if it's correct. A hint would be appreciated.
