Homework Help: Is there a way to figure the velocity required to move uphill

  1. May 2, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm trying to figure out how much velocity is required to move 1000 kg car up a hill that has a .02 percent grade and a friction value 0.7.

    2. Relevant equations

    F= μmg cosθ

    3. The attempt at a solution

    F = 6866.99 N

    If this is correct how do you get this into velocity.

    Ah, never mind this question really makes no sence anyway. Obviously we are dealing with forces which can not be changed to velocity. ( ya... I loose arguments with myself all the time).
