CE 108 Homework #2 Solutions 1. Calculate and plot needed engine power output for a 1995 Ford Taurus under different driving conditions. Calculate resistive force for each scenario: The first term on the right hand side of the equation can be dropped because there is no acceleration in this problem. Theta can be calculated using the roadway grade: Engine power output is calculated using the resistive force, velocity, and transmission efficiency. Accessory load is ignored in this problem.
