The space shuttle has a mass of 2,000,000 kg. At liftoff, the engines generate a force of 32,000,000 N. What is the velocity of the shuttle after 10 minutes if the acceleration rate were 13 m/s/s? What is the acceleration of the shuttle?
The trust force is countering gravity, and the excess is accelerating.
EngineForce= mass(g + a)
solve for a.
change time to seconds.
