Homework Help: Just Lovely

  1. Sep 23, 2004 #1
    A city planner is working on the redesign of a hilly portion of a city. An important consideration is how steep the roads can be so that even low-powered cars can get up the hills without slowing down. It is given that a particular small car, with a mass of 1500 kg, can accelerate on a level road from rest to 25m/s in 10.0 s. Using these data, calculate the maximum steepness of a hill.
