240 CHAPTER 3. FORCE AND ACCELERATION 3.26 Chapter 3, Problem 26 Problem: The sum of the aerodynamic drag force and the road-friction force on a Jaguar XF coasting along a horizontal surface is D = m D μ r g + v 2 /L i ,wh e r e m is the car’s mass, v is speed, μ r is rolling friction coefficient, g is gravitational acceleration and L is a characteristic length. Assuming the Jaguar’s initial speed is v o when it starts coasting, find the distance, d , that it coasts until it comes to rest. Express your answer as a function of g , L , μ r and v o . Also, find the time, t f , as a function of g , L , μ r and v o that it takes the Jaguar to come to rest.

Hence, dv dt = − μ r g − v 2 L = ⇒ Ldv μ r gL + v 2 = − dt We integrate as follows. L 8 v o dv μ r gL + v 2 = − 8 t f dt = ⇒ L √ μ r gL tan − 1 v √ μ r gL μ r gL e e e e v =0 v = v o = − t f 3.26. CHAPTER 3, PROBLEM 26 241 Simplifying and rearranging terms, we conclude that t f = ± L μ r g tan − 1 w v o √ μ r gL W...
