a. Determine the work done by the motor when the wheelchair starts at rest and speeds up to its normal speed.

b. Determine the maximum distance that the wheelchair can travel on a horizontal surface at its normal speed, using its stored energy. (Ignore the energy needed for it to speed up when it starts.)

c. Suppose that 0.023 percent of the power required for driving is expended against drag due to the flexing of the wheelchair’s soft rubber tires. Calculate the magnitude of the drag force.
