Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A 1250 kg car accelerates uniformly from rest to 14 . 6 m / s in 4 . 55 s. Find the work done on the car in this time interval. Correct answer: 133 . 225 kJ. Explanation: Given : m = 1250 kg , v f = 14 . 6 m / s , and Δ t = 4 . 55 s . W = Δ K = 1 2 mv 2 f = 1 2 (1250 kg) (14 . 6 m / s) 2 · 1 kJ 1000 J = 133 . 225 kJ . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points Find the average power delivered by the en gine in this time interval.
