1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The operation manual of a car, mass 760kg, claims that the car, starting from rest, can reach a speed of 15m.s in first gear in 3 seconds. The acceleration of the car is constant and friction can be ignored. If the car operates under these conditions, calculate: 9.1) The power output in first gear 9.2) The maximum distance covered in 3 seconds 2. Relevant equations ek=1/2mv^2 p=w/t delta y=vf+vi/2 *t 3. The attempt at a solution 9.1) ek = 1/2mv^2 = 1/2*760*15^2 = 85500 J p = w/t = 85500/3 = 28500 W 9.2) delta y = vf+vi/2 *t = 15/2 *3 = 22.5m Could Someone Please Check?
