USE conservation of momentum for-
mula. The astronaut will have the same mo-
mentum as the oxygen tank - only in the
reverse direction. ——
A 62.5 kg astronaut is on a space walk when
the tether line to the shuttle breaks. The
astronaut is able to throw a 11.0 kg oxygen
tank in a direction away from the shuttle with
a speed of 11.4 m/s, propelling the astronaut
back to the shuttle.
Assuming that the astronaut starts from
rest, find the final speed of the astronaut after
throwing the tank.
Answer in units of m/s
The equation for theconservation of momentum: 62.5 kg * (-v) + 11.0 kg * 11.4 m/s = 0; v = 11.0 kg * 11.4 m/s / 62.5 kg = 2.006 m/s
This long-lasting quarantine period has undoubtedly shaken up the world. From the economy to health care, and even to schools…

the price was really affordable but there were few mistakes due to which i lost 20 percent out of 100 but really it was really a great assignment work and in future i will suggest everyone to use your site for help.
