Suppose a 925-kg car climbs a 2.05° slope at a constant speed of 30.5 m/s.

Calculate the power output, in watts, needed for the car to make this climb, while encountering wind resistance and friction totaling 595 N.

Step 1

Since, the car climbs the slope with a constant velocity, the expression for the power required is,

Step 2

Here, *F* is the force that is required to balance the opposing forces and *v* is the car’s velocity.

The forces opposing the car’s motion are the frictional force *f* and the sine component of the car’s weight. That is, F must be equivalent to

Step 3

Substitute the value of *F* i...
