Hello. I am new to this forum. I am a chemist. Physics is not my strength. Recently, I got a speeding ticket and I have to do some simple calculations in order to silence my mind. The problem is the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A car (m = 1498.95 kg) is constantly accelerating uphill (15 degrees incline) from:

a) 0 to 43 mph (69.2 km/h)

b) 5 to 43 mph (8 to 69.2 km/h)

The road is wet and it is snowing.

Static and dynamic friction coefficients are 0.6 and 0.4, respectively.

The acceleration time of the car from 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) on a dry road is 8 seconds.

The acceleration time of the car from 0-43 mph (69.2 km/h) on a dry road is 5.73 seconds.

What distance the car would travel in both cases?

Is there any other data that I have to provide? Can you also include the equations that have to be used in order to solve this problem? Thank you so much!
