I just need a little help going about solving this problem. This is first problem in this lesson, and it is driving me crazy. Any help would be great!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 3000 lb car is accelerated from 0 to 60mph in 10 seconds. Find the torque needed if the car has wheels of 1 ft. Ans (825 ft lbs)

We know that T (torque) = Force X radius X sin (theta), but it doesnt seem that the equation is helpful in this problem.

Thanks,

Dan
