Question: 1 a racecar frontwheeldrive vehicle is speeding down a level...

Question details

1. A racecar (front-wheel-drive vehicle) is speeding down a level highway at 100 km/hr. The car has a coefficient of drag of 0.3, a frontal area of 1.5 m2, a weight of 10 kN, a wheelbase of 3 meters, and a center of gravity 0.5 meters above the roadway surface, which is 1 meter behind the front axle. The air density is 1.054 kg/m and the coefficient of road adhesion is 0.6. What is the rate of acceleration for the vehicle? 2. Using the same case from probleml, assume that instead the racecar encounters a steep hill that it must travel up. It is desired that the driver maintain the 100 km/hr velocity at a very minimum. With that being said, what would be the maximum grade that the hill could be
