a 1200kg car accellerates from 0 to 100 km/hr in 5.8 .
a. calculate the average acceleration in meters per second squared of the car
b. calculate the average force in newtons exerted by the car
v = 100 km/hour = 100*1000/3600 m/s = 27.7778 m/s
a = (v-u)/t = 27.7778/5.8 = 4.789 m/s^2
Force = ma = 1200 kg * 4.789 m/s^2= 5747.13 Kg m/s^2 =5747.13 N
