Calculate the work required to be done to stop a car of 1500 kg moving at a velocity of 60 km/h?

m=1500kg

u= 60km/h =60* 5/18 = 50/3m/s

v =0m/s

w = change in its KE.

initial KE =1/2 mu 2

final KE=1/2mv²

An electric bulb of 60W is used for 6 hours per day calculate the units of energy consumed in one day by the bulb.

Electrical energy consumed by the bulb per day = P x t = 60 W x 6h = 360 Wh

1 unit = 1 kW h = 1000 W h
1 W h = (1/1000) unit
360 W h = 0.360 unit
Electrical energy consum...

A body of mass 2 kg falls from rest. What will be its kinetic energy during the fall at the end of 2 s?(assume g=10.)

Mass of the body m = 2 kg
Initial speed u = 0
t = 2 s
g = 10 m/s 2.
For a freely falling body the final velocity at the end of t s is given by
v = u + gt = 0...

A force is applied on a car of mass 1500 kg, so that its speed increases from 54 km/h to 72 km/h. Find the work done by the force on the car.

Mass of car m = 1500 kg
Initial velocity = 54 km/h = 54 x 5/18 = 15 m/s
Final velocity = 72 km/h = 72 x 5/18 = 20 m/s
( 1 km/h = 1000 m/ (3600 s) = 5/18 m/s
Initial kinetic ener...

Water is falling on the blades of a turbine at the rate of 8 x 102 kg per minute, height of fall is 50 m, calculate the power given to turbine. (g=10 m/s2)

Power = Work done/time
= mgh/t
= (8 x 10 2/60)(kg/s) x (10 m/s 2) x 50 m
= 6666.6 W
= 6.6666 kW

A truck of mass 1800 kg is moving witha speed 54 km/h when brakes are appiled it stops with uniform retardation at a distance of 200 m.Calculate the force appiled by the brakes of the truck and the work done before stopping.

Mass of the truck m = 1800 kg
Initial speed u = 54 km/h = 15 m/s
Final speed v = 0
s = 200 m
We have v 2 - u 2 = 2as
a = (v 2 - u 2 )/(2s)
= (0 - 15 2 )/400 =...

What is meant by average power?

Average power the ratio of the total work done by the body and the total time taken.
Power = Energy consumed/ Time taken = work done / Time
