Is it possible that the car could have accelerated to 55mph within 268 meters if the car can only accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 15 seconds?

Answers : (1)


Dear sachin,

Let us find the maximum acceleration of the car:

The car can accelerate from 0 to in 15 seconds. Then maximum acceleration is


If the car needs to accelerate to within 268 meters then its acceleration should be


This acceleration is less than the maximum possible acceleration, so the car can reach the speed 55 mph within 268 meters.

Why does the car with flattened tyre stop sooner than the one with inflated tyres?
dear hanuma, Flattened tyre has more area of contact with the road. Hence rolling friction increases and there by a car with flattened tyre stops sooner.

Sorry, I've made a mistake. We have, aceeleration, a = bt Integrating on both sides, At t = 0, v = u. So, c = u Integrating both sides : At t = 0 the particle was at origin, so c = 0 Hence, ...
