When driving uphill why can't I reach a velocity that I would have been able to maintain if I started with it?
Consider these two situations when driving on a long straight road uphill: Starting at a high velocity $v_h$, which the car is able to maintain. Starting at a lower velocity $v_l$, and then trying ...
Power is known to be equal to the force x velocity (P=FV). Im solving a question that states the following : Car with engine working at 32 kW, mass of 1 tonne, travels at a constant speed of 40m/s ...
I'm a pure mathematician by trade, and have been trying to teach myself A-level mechanics. (This is not homework, it is purely self-study.) I've been working through the exercises and have come up ...
I'm a pure mathematician by trade, but have been teaching myself classical mechanics. I've got to the chapter on Work, Energy and Power and I've found an example that is causing me some problems. ...
I can roughly feel a force of 10 newton only by considering the weight of 1 kilogram object. How to imagine the following measurements? Maximum horsepower 16 hp @ 9,500 RPM Maximum torque ...
