For a given motor vehicle, the maximum achievable deceleration from braking is approximately 7 m/sec 2 on dry concrete. On wet asphalt, it is approximately 2.5 m/sec 2 . Given that 1 mph corresponds to 0.447 m/sec, find the total distance that a car travels in meters on dry concrete after the brakes are applied until it comes to a complete stop if the initial velocity is 67 mph (30 m/sec) or if the initial braking velocity is 56 mph (25 m/sec). Find the corresponding distances if the surface is slippery wet asphalt.

In dry conditions, with initial velocity v 0 = 30 m/s, D = 64.3 and, if v 0 = 25 , D = 44.64 . In wet conditions, if v 0 = 30 , and D = 180 and if v 0 = 25 , D = 125 .

A motor vehicle has a maximum efficiency of 33 mpg at a cruising speed of 40 mph. The efficiency drops at a rate of 0.1 mpg/mph between 40 mph and 50 mph, and at a rate of 0.4 mpg/mph between 50 mph and 80 mph. What is the efficiency in miles per gallon if the car is cruising at 50 mph? What is the efficiency in miles per gallon if the car is cruising at 80 mph? If gasoline costs $3.50/gal, what is the cost of fuel to drive 50 mi at 40 mph, at 50 mph, and at 80 mph?

Although some engines are more efficient at given a horsepower than others, on average, fuel efficiency decreases with horsepower at a rate of 1 / 25 mpg/horsepower. If a typical 50-horsepower engine has an average fuel efficiency of 32 mpg, what is the average fuel efficiency of an engine with the following horsepower: 150, 300, 450?

E ( 150 ) = 28 , E ( 300 ) = 22 , E ( 450 ) = 16

[T] The following table provides hypothetical data regarding the level of service for a certain highway.

Highway Speed Range (mph) Vehicles per Hour per Lane Density Range (vehicles/mi)
>60 <600 <10
60–57 600–1000 10–20
57–54 1000–1500 20–30
54–46 1500–1900 30–45
46–30 1900 2100 45–70
<30 Unstable 70–200
  1. Plot vehicles per hour per lane on the x -axis and highway speed on the y -axis.
  2. Compute the average decrease in speed (in miles per hour) per unit increase in congestion (vehicles per hour per lane) as the latter increases from 600 to 1000, from 1000 to 1500, and from 1500 to 2100. Does the decrease in miles per hour depend linearly on the increase in vehicles per hour per lane?
  3. Plot minutes per mile (60 times the reciprocal of miles per hour) as a function of vehicles per hour per lane. Is this function linear?

a.
A plot of the given data, which decreases in a roughly concave down manner from 600 to 2200.
b. Between 600 and 1000 the average decrease in vehicles per hour per lane is −0.0075. Between 1000 and 1500 it is −0.006 per vehicles per hour per lane, and between 1500 and 2100 it is −0.04 vehicles per hour per lane. c.
A graph of given data, showing that minutes per mile increases dramatically as wehicles per hour reaches 2000.
The graph is nonlinear, with minutes per mile increasing dramatically as vehicles per hour per lane reach 2000.

You have downloaded the aplication Calculus Volume 1, tackling about lessons for (mostly) college freshmen, Calculus 1: Differential, and this group I think aims to let concerns and questions from students who want to clarify something about the subject. Well, this is what I guess so.
