Answer to Question #1017 in Mechanics | Relativity for sabeen
On a planet that has no atmosphere, a rocket 15.8 m tall is resting on its launch pad. Freefall acceleration on the planet is 4.45 m/s2. A ball is dropped from the top of the rocket with zero initial velocity. (a) How long does it take to reach the launch pad? (b) What is the speed of the ball just before it reaches the ground?
Let's write the equations of the motion for this situation: 0 = h - gt2/2; t =√(2h/g) = √(2*15.8/4.45) = 2.66 s. v= gt = 4.45*2.66 = 11.84 m/s
I have no more assignments.
Thank you for all the help! With 19 credit hours, their is always one class that hits the back burner, with your help i was able to get a B in this class and am going to Walk on graduation.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
