Are these simple equations correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For rolling resistance force at a given speed:

RR = aWS

For rolling resistance force at a given rate of acceleration:

RR = aWS^2

Where:

RR = rolling resistance

a = coefficient of rolling resistance

W = vehicle weight

S = speed
