Given that the car produced work (W) of 32000 kJ during the trip to move forward on a flat pavement with coefficient of friction of 0.2, how far did the car travel?

Assume that the car was at rest then it accelerates to 100 km/h in 12 s, and then which maintained constant velocity of 100 km/h till gas (work) ran out. The mass of the car is 432.5 kg, and ignore the mass change from consuming gas.

2. Relevant equations

F = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I just did this:

W = (ma - umg)d

To find the distance, is this correct?
