The vehicle weighs 1.5 tons and stands on a horizontal road surface. what is the weight of this car? what is it applied to?
Problem data: m (mass of the presented car) = 1.5 t = 1.5 * 10 ^ 3 kg.
Constants: g (acceleration due to gravity) ≈ 10 m / s2.
1) Weight of the presented car: P = m * g = 1.5 * 10 ^ 3 * 10 = 15 * 10 ^ 3 H = 15 kN.
2) Since the support of the presented car is the horizontal surface of the road, and the weight of an arbitrary body acts on the support that prevents it from falling, the weight of the presented car is applied to the road.
Answer: The weight of the presented vehicle is 15 kN and is applied to a horizontal road.
