Problem 2.20 Known: The drag force on a truck is known as a function of velocity and other parameters. Find: Determine the power required by the truck to overcome drag. Schematic & Given Data: Power required to overcome drag Drag force Velocity Drag coefficient Projected frontal area Air density d d d W F V C A ρ = = = = = = ± Model and Assumptions: The truck is the system. Solution: “The rate of energy transfer by work is called power and is denoted by W ± . The rate of energy transfer by work is equal to the product of the force and the velocity at the point of application of the force.” WF V =⋅ ± (Eq.2.13 in a textbook) Applying Eq. 2.13, the power required to overcome drag is dd V ± (1) The drag force, d F , is given by 2 1 2 FC A V = (2) Substituting Eq. (2) to Eq. (1), 23 11 22 d WC A V V C A V ρρ ⎛⎞ == ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ ± (3)
