1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A huge SUV of mass 2300 kg can accelerate from 0 to 60 mi/h in 9.0 s. What force does the road exert on the SUV? V0 = 0 V= 60mph or 26.8224m/s M= 2300kg t=9s 2. Relevant equations F=ma 3. The attempt at a solution a= (26.8224) / 9 = 2.98 Fx = ma = 2.98*2300 = 6854.61 N Fy = m*g = 2300*9.8 = 22540 N So those are the two forces that I was able to calculate but I am not sure how I find the force exerted by the road on the car. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! other info: I read somewhere that the force would be sqrt (Fx2 + Fy2) but that didn't give me the right answer if my above work is correct.
