Homework Statement



An 850 kg car accelerates uniformly from rest to 33 m/s in a distance of 120 m. What is
the magnitude of the net force acting on the car?

Homework Equations



F = ma

dynamic equations

The Attempt at a Solution



So i think i have this one sorted but just posting to see iv got it right .

Seeing as i need acceleration to find the force i have to find it using the info i have so

a= ?
s= 120
v = 33
u = 0
t = not needed .

v^2=u^2+2as

(33)^2 = 0 + 2(a)120

1089 = 240a

4.5375 = a

4.5375 m/s^2

F = ma

850 x 4.5375

3856.875 N
