Q:
# how much horsepower would a Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody need to tow the SS Delphine up the industry standard: Davis Dam Grade Climb? Pro Tips:Davis Dam assumed grade = 7% Air density is sea level conditions (.002377 slugs/f^t3) w(weight) of the SS Delphine + trailer + Redeye = 3,922,000 + 150,000 + 4451 Lbs Crr = coefficient of rolling resistance = .015 Assume Combined CDA is 1555 ft^2 SAE J2807 (Davis Dam Grande Climb) - min speed is 40mpg (59 ft/s) F(drag) = 1/2p x V^2 x C(d)A F(rolling resistance) = W x cos x Crr F(weight) = W x sin F(sum) = F(drag) + F(rr) + F(weight) P = F(sum)XV convert to horsepower = P(1hp/550ft lbf/sec)

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: I am getting a result around the 54,800 area, so I am selecting the 55,000 HP answer.
