Determine the horsepower produced by a passenger car traveling at a speed of 65 mi/h on a straight road of 5% grade with a smooth pavement. Assume the weight of the car is 4000 lb and the cross-sectional area of the car is 40 f t 2.

In the rover below, calculate the x-y coordinates of the center of gravity. The wheelbase is 12in and the track width is 8in. The x-direction is left to right, and the y-direction is up and down. The front of the rover is to the right and the origin is located at the center of the right rear wheel. Draw the free-body diagrams.
