Problem 39PE

In 1967, New Zealander Burt Munro set the world record for an Indian motorcycle, on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, with a maximum speed of 183.58 mi/h. The one-way course was 5.00 mi long. Acceleration rates are often described by the time it takes to reach 60.0 mi/h from rest. If this time was 4.00 s, and Burt accelerated at this rate until he reached his maximum speed, how long did it take Burt to complete the course?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution 39PE Step 1 of 5 The acceleration of the motorcycle can be calculated as, Here, v is the final velocity, u is the initial ve locity and t is the time interval. Step 2 of 5 Substitute 60 mi/h for v, 0 mi/h for u and 4 s for t in formula for a . The time required to attain maximum speed of 183.58 mi/h is calculated as, Substitute183.58 mi/h for , for a and 0 mi/h for u . Step 3 of 5 The distance traveled by him, till he reached the maximum speed is, Substitute183.58 mi/h for ,12.2 s for and 0 mi/h for u.
