A 1500 kg car is approaching an icy (i.e. frictionless) hill as shown below. The car then runs out of gas traveling at a speed of 10 m/s. a) Will the car make it to the top of the hill?
picture is attached
vf^2 = vi^2 + 2ax[/B]
The Attempt at a Solution
Vf is 0. Vi is 10. x is 10 (sin30 = 5/x)
0 = 0 +10a
i'm lost here at acceleration. If the car is running out of gas, how are we supposed to know how much it is slowing down by? :(
