(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1100kg car can accelerate from 0-60kph in 6.5 seconds. With constant engine power, what is the steepest hill the car could climb at 20 kph.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

W=Fd

P=W/t

g=mgSin(theta)

maybe work energy theorem?

3. The attempt at a solution

Not Much...just conversions and I do not know where to go from here

60kph-->16.67m/s

a=16.67/6.5 = 2.56m/s^2

20km/h --> 5.56m/s
