Problem 11P

A particular race car can cover a quarter-mile track (402 m) in 6.40 s starting from a standstill. Assuming the acceleration is constant, how many “g’s” does the driver experience? If the combined mass of the driver and race car is 485 kg, what horizontal force must the road exert on the tires?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution: Step 1 of 1 Static friction Normal force Kinetic friction Tension Thrust Weight Kinetic friction is present because the skier and the slope are moving relative to each other, and the friction is non-negligible. There is always normal force acting upon any given object, unless otherwise stated. The normal force, keep in mind, is coming out of the plane at an angle, not going straight upwards. Weight is a result of gravity acting upon the skier, going straight through the plane perpendicular to the ground. There is no tension because there are no strings or ropes on the skier, static friction is invalid as stated already, and thrust may or may not be negligible in this case.
