A battery-operated car utilizes a 120.0 V battery with negligible internal resistance.
Find the charge, in coulombs, the batteries must be able to store and move in order to accelerate the 780 kg car from rest to 24 m/s, make it climb a 1.75 × 102 m high hill while maintaining that speed, and then cause it to travel at a constant 24 m/s by exerting a 4.8 × 102 N force for an hour.
