Numerical Problem from Laws of Motion

Share with:


An 8000 kg engine pulls 40000 kg train alonged a level track and gives an acceleration of 1.2m/s2. Find the accelaration produced by same engine on a train of mass 16000kg?


Answer:

Force exerted by the engine = mass of train x acceleration =  40000 x 1.2=48000N

When the same engine pulls a 16000 kg train, the acceleration = 48000/16000=3m/s2
