A car weighing 15000N experiences a drag force of 1200N. The car travels 30m/s on a level highway. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.2. If the car travels for 10s at this speed, calculate the power the engine produces.

The car then goes up a 10 degree constant incline. Calculate the additional force the engine must now provide. Find the power for friction on the incline.

2. Relevant equations

F = ma

MkFn

a= v/t

3. The attempt at a solution

so far i got that 15000= mg m = 1529.1

a = 3m/s^2
