A moving car encounters air resistance which is proportional to the square of the speed of the car.What is the ratio of the power required at 40 km/hr to that required at 80 km/hrwith the same braking force?

The expression for power in terms of force and velocity:

$P=Fv$

But, it is given that

Hence,

Ratio of power:

• 18
