A car of mass 750 kg accelerates away from traffic lights. At the end of the first 100 m it has reached a speed
of 12 m/s. During this time, its engine provides an average forward force of 780 N, and the average force of
friction on the car is 240 N.
a Calculate the work done on the car by the force of its engine.
b Calculate the work done on the car by the force of friction.
c Using ke. = mv2, calculate the increase in the car’s kinetic energy at the end of the first 100 m.
d Explain whether your answers are consistent with the principle of conservation of energy.​
