Carley drives a car

The total mass of the car & the people in it is 1600 kg

The engine produces a driving force of 4200 N

During the acceleration there is a driving force of 1000N

Calculate the acceleration. (3 marks)

For this question you need to look at the equations on page 2 & see

what you have to do & what information you have to answer this

question. For this question the equation is Force=mass x acceleration.

You need to rearrange the formula acceleration=force divided mass

(Writing the formula will get you marks)

Acceleration=force divided mass (1 mark)

2400 divided 1600 (1 mark)

answer= 2.625 (1 mark)

(you can round the answer off, in this case it would

be 2.6)…read more
