initial speed = 36 km/hr = 36×(5/18) = 10 m/s ; final speed = 90 km/hr = 90×(5/18) = 25 m/s

(a) acceleration ; formula to be used   :- " v = u+a t ",  acceleration a = (v-u)/t = (25-10)/10 = 1.5 m/s

(b) distance ; formula to be used :- " S = u t +(1/2) a t2 " , distance = 10×10 + (1/2)×1.5×10×10 = 175 m

(c) momentum = mass × speed  = 2000×25 = 50000 Kgm/s

(d) force = mass × acceleration = 2000×1.5 = 3000 N

(e) Energy = workdone = force ×distance = 3000×175 = 5,25,000 J

(f) Power = Energy /time = 525000/10 = 52500 W = 52.5 kW
