Assume that air resistance remains con- stant at 395 N during this time. Find the average power developed by the engine. Correct answer: 33 . 7692 hp. Explanation: m = 1900 kg , v i = 0 m / s , v f = 15 . 7 m / s , and Δ t = 10 . 6 s . The acceleration of the car is a = v f - v i Δ t = v f Δ t since v i = 0, so a = 15 . 7 m / s 10 . 6 s = 1 . 48113 m / s 2 . Thus the constant forward force due to the engine is found from summationdisplay F = F engine - F air = m a F engine = F air + m a = 395 N + (1900 kg) ( 1 . 48113 m / s 2 ) = 3209 . 15 N . The average velocity of the car during this interval is v av = v f + v i 2 , so the average power output is P = F engine v av = F engine parenleftBig v f 2 parenrightBig = (3209 . 15 N) parenleftbigg 15 . 7 m / s 2 parenrightbigg parenleftbigg 1 hp 764 W parenrightbigg = 33 . 7692 hp . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the instantaneous power output of the engine at t = 10 . 6 s just before the car stops accelerating. Correct answer: 67 . 5384 hp. Explanation: The instantaneous velocity is 15 . 7 m / s and the instantaneous power output of the engine is P = F engine v f = (3209 . 15 N)(15 . 7 m / s) parenleftbigg 1 hp 764 W parenrightbigg = 67 . 5384 hp . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Three 6 kg masses are located at points in the xy plane as shown. 35 cm 54 cm What is the magnitude of the resultant force (caused by the other two masses) on the mass at the origin? The universal gravita- tional constant is 6 . 6726 × 10 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 . Correct answer: 2 . 12693 × 10 8 N. Explanation: Let : m = 6 kg , x = 35 cm = 0 . 35 m , y = 54 cm = 0 . 54 m , and G = 6 . 6726 × 10 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
