Question
Chapter 1, Problem 1P

(a)

To determine

## Determine the mass of car in slugs.

(a)

Expert Solution

The mass of car is 108.6slugs.

### Explanation of Solution

Express the mass of car.

W=mg (I)

Here, weight and mass of car is Wandm respectively, and acceleration due to gravity is g.

Conclusion:

Substitute 32.2ft/s2 for g and 3500lb for W in Equation (I)

3500lb=m(32.2ft/s2)m=108.6slugs

Hence, the mass of car is 108.6slugs.

(b)

To determine

### Determine the weight of car in newtons.

(b)

Expert Solution

The weight of car is 15.568kN.

### Explanation of Solution

Express the weight of car.

W=3500lb=3500lb[4.4482Nlb]=15568.7N[kN1000N]=15.568kN

Hence, the weight of car is 15.568kN.

(c)

To determine

### Determine the mass of car in kilograms.

(c)

Expert Solution

The mass of car is 1584.89kg.

### Explanation of Solution

Express the mass of car.

m=108.6slugs=108.6slugs[14.5939kgslugs]=1584.89kg

Hence, the mass of car is 1584.89kg.
