1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A car encounters an inclined plane Given- Weight of car in N (6500), velocity on the flat surface (22.5 m/s), power of the engine (78000), incline of the hill (8.1 degrees) Want to find- velocity on the hill (power and restistive forces remain constant) 2. Relevant equations P = Fvcos(theta) 3. The attempt at a solution I found F by plugging in the power and velocity. I then subtracted the gravitational force due to the hill from this number to get the resultant force. plugged this in to P = Fvcos(theta) and got a number bigger than the original... urgent help would be greatly appreciated since HW is due in 8 minutes, but i'm more worried about the concept for the test tomorrow. thanks.
