A 5000 kg cart carrying a vertical rocket launcher moves to the right at a constant speed of 27.0 m/s along a horizontal track. It launches a 54.8 kg- rocket vertically upward with an initial speed of 33.1 m/s relative to the cart.
A) where will the rocket land, relatively to the cart?
B)How far does the cart move while the rocket is in the air?
A) it lands in the cart. think about why.
B) multiply the time the rocket is in the air by 27 m/s.
A real rocket accelerates while burning. This a rather phony problem
