A cannon that is 10m long is designed to launch a 10kg ball over a castle wall.
In order to do this the ball must have a speed of at least 50m/s as it exits the
cannon. For every 10kg of explosives used, the force on the ball in the cannon
increases by 1000N. How many kg of explosives should they use?
The amount of explosive is
1.25•10 =12.5 kg.
