A train of 3000 KN

Hi all

1 ) A train of 3000 KN weight starts from rest and reached a velocity of 54 km/h after one min . if the frictional resistance of the track is 5N/KN of the train's weight . Find the tractive force developed by the engine ?

I don't understand what is mean "tractive force " ??

[color=#FF0000]anyway I start solve the question

w = 3000 kN
mass = 305810
u = 0
v = 54 km/h

v = u + at
a = 0.25
F = m X a
F = 305810 X 0.25
76452.5 N

2 ) A parachute weighing 500 N falling with uniform acceleration from rest, descends 5 m in the first 4s. Find the resultant of air on the parachute .

1.)

We need to find the final velocity in meters per second:

Hence:

2.) First, we may find the net force on the parachute:

Now, if we let be the resultant force of air on the parachute, we have:

Re: A train of 3000 KN

teacher said the answer for first one is not complete

he said

F = p - ( 5 X 3000 )
F = p - 15000 kN

I don't know what he mean ?

Re: A train of 3000 KN

It appears that he means you need to add the resistive force to the result to get the total.

Re: A train of 3000 KN

Are you mean tractive force = force + resistive force or what ?

and I want know ,,, what is the difference between force which arr got and tractive force ?

Re: A train of 3000 KN

For Q 2 ...

Fnet = m Xa

(500/9.81 ) X ( 0.625 ) = 31.85 N

I don't know How you got ( 0.14 N )

Re: A train of 3000 KN

How did you get 0.625 for the acceleration?

I get 1/360 using which comes from where .

Re: A train of 3000 KN

see

h = ut+1/2at^2
5 = 0 + 0.5a(4^)2
a = 5/8 which is 0.625 ?? where is the mistake ?

Re: A train of 3000 KN

Ooops, I used the time from the first problem. :lol:

Carry on...

Re: A train of 3000 KN

now I know all the answer just this formula
I don't know

why you said

F net = w - Fr

can please explain to me fully
