PhysicsQ&A LibrarySuppose a car travels 108 km at a speed of 30.0 m/s, and uses 2.20 gallons of gasoline. Only 30% of the gasoline goes into useful work by the force that keeps the car moving at constant speed despite friction. (The energy content of gasoline is 1.3 ✕ 108 J per gallon.) a) What is the force exerted to keep the car moving at constant speed? N (b) If the required force is directly proportional to speed, how many gallons will be used to drive 108 km at a speed of 28.0 m/s? gallonsQuestion
