A train of mass 200,000kg makes a journey on a straight track.
First stage – the train moves with constant acceleration starting at rest and reaching speed of 25ms when it has travelled 0.25km.
Second stage – the train travels 11.25km at a constant speed of 25ms
Third stage – the train has constant deceleration and comes to rest in 40s.
Find the acceleration in the first stage? for this I got 1.25 m/s/s
Find the total distance travelled?
The resistance to motion is modelled as a constant force of magnitude 100000N throughout each stage of the journey. Find the driving force produced by the train’s engine during the first stage.?
Any help would be fab thanks J
