Here is the question would be great if you could answer it:
A small rocket has a weight of 200N and a mass of 20kg. When launched it accelerates at 5m/s^2. Find:
(a) The resultant (accelerating) force.
(b) The thrust from the engine.
THANK YOU PPS!! :D
(a) Resultant force = Mass x acceleration so 20 x 5 = 100N
(b) Results force = Thrust - weight (cause it's moving forward)
so Resultant force + Weight = Thrust
100 + 200 = 300N
THAAANK YOOU SOOOO MUCH :D
That's ok. :)
Just ask if you need anymore help.
