A mechanic pushes a 2.40 ✕ 103-kg car from rest to a speed of v, doing 5,430 J of work in the process. During this time, the car moves 29.0 m. Neglecting friction between car and road, find v and the horizontal force exerted on the car.

(a) the speed v
m/s

(b) the horizontal force exerted on the car (Enter the magnitude.)

Step 1

Given information:

Mass of the car (m) = 2.4 × 103 kg

The work done in moving the car (W) = 5430 J

The distance through which the car is moved (s) = 29.0 m

Step 2

The velocity (v) of the car after the work is done is given by equating ...
