the engine of a train has to apply a force 5000n to over come friction to run at uniform rate of of 90 km per h .what is the power?
Asked by yash | 29th Nov, 2013, 07:19: AM
The speed of train = 90 km/h = 90 × 5/18 = 25 m/s
Thus, in one second, the train will travel a distance of 25 m.
Hence, work done by the engine is
W = Fs = 5000 × 25 = 125000 J
Thus, the power generated by the engine is
P = W/t = 125000/1 = 125000 W
