##### Reference no: EM13305226

A driver traveling on a roadway decides to overtake a slow-moving truck traveling at 15 mph. The accelerating characteristic of the car is given by the following: dv/dt= 2.08-0.032v where v is the speed (ft/sec), and t is the time (sec).

(a) What is the acceleration of the car after 3, 7, 10, and 100 seconds?

(b) What is the maximum speed attainable by the car?

(c) How far will the car travel in 120 seconds?

The driver in problem 2 stops at an intersection with a two-way stop sign. Assume that the width of the intersection in 24 ft and the car is 20 ft long. If the driver's perception-reaction time is 0.75 seconds, determine if he can clear the intersection safely for the following conditions?

(a) When the through traffic is quite heavy and the average gap between vehicles is 5 seconds.

(b) If the average gap between vehicles increases to 10 seconds.

#### What is its depth in the 18 inch diamenter pipeline

Sewage flows through a 12" diameter pipeline then through an 18" diamenter pipeline. The flow is the same (unknown) value in each pipe, and the slope is the same (unknown) c

#### Determine the size pfr and cfstrs required to treat

Determine the size PFR and CFSTR's required to treat 4000 m3/day of sewage with a BOD of 200 mg/L. State law requires a minimum of 92% removal and BOD follows first order ki

#### Derive a formula relating the variables of the tube

consider the steady viscous flow through a small horizontal tube. for this type of flow, the pressure gradient along the tube should be a function of the dynamic viscosity,

#### Determine the normal and shearing stresses at point

Three forces are applied to the bar. Determine the normal and shearing stresses at (a) point a, (b) point b, (c) point c.Assuming that the 750-N force is directed vertically

#### What is the percent volatile matter in the sample

A suspended solids analysis is run on a sample. The tare mass of the crucible and filter is 55.3520 g. A sample of 260 mL is then filtered and the residue dried to constant ma

#### Write a vba function that receives a gauge pressure

A 50-m tape is used to measure between two points. The average weight of the tape per meter is 0.320 N. If the measured distance is 48.888 m, with the tape supported at the en

#### Explain what offers no restraint to motion in the y-z plane

The cable is taut and prevents motion of point B in the x-z plane (i.e. acts as a pin for y-axis buckling), but offers no restraint to motion in the y-z plane (i.e. is unsup

#### Determine what is max amount of cargo that can be carried

A small truck is to be driven down a 4% grade at 70mi/hr. The coefficient of road adhesion is 0.95, and it is known that the baking efficiency is 80% when the truck is empty
