Homework Statement


On Land, a 5000kg amphibious vehicle can accelerate from rest to 10 m/s in 25 sec.


Find...
a)Final Kinetic Energy?
-250,000
b)Avg Power furnished by engine during acceleration?
-10,000
c)If the same power is required to propel the vehicle through water at a constant 2 m/s, What is the magnitude of the resistive force being overcome?

The attempt at a solution
I haven't learn or don't know what is the meaning of Resistive Force, I tried searching for a formula online but they do not make sense.

This is a force that resists the motion. What does constant velocity mean?

speed remains the same, it does not increase or decrease

Yes, but what does that mean regarding the net force acting on the vehicle?
