A 64.7 kg astronaut is on a space walk away
from the shuttle when her tether line breaks.
She is able to throw her 14.1 kg oxygen tank
away from the shuttle with a speed of 7.45m/s
to propel herself back to the shuttle.
Assuming that she starts from rest (rela-
tive to the shuttle), determine the maximum
distance she can be from the craft when the
line breaks and still return within 68.2 s (the
amount of time she can hold her breath).
Answer in units of m
