An ice sled powered by a rocket engine starts from rest on a large frozen lake and accelerates at +13.0 m/s^2. At t1 the rocket shut down and the sled moves with constant velocity v until t2. The total distance traveled by the sled is 5.30 x 10^3m and the total time is 90s. ...

algebra
You do not say if it is a cylinder (sides straight up and down) or some other shape like a cone or a half sphere or whatever. If the sides go straight up then 30 h = 120 h = 4 meters If it is a cone or pyramid (straight sloping sides) (1/3) (30) h = 120 h = 12 meters

(a) At rocket cutoff, it changes from accelerating at 1.5 m/s^2 to decelerating at rate -g = -9.8 m/s^2. (b) At 120 m cutoff, the rocket's velocity V is given by V^2 - 58^2 = 2 a X = 360 m^2/s^2 V = 61.02 m/s Maximum height occurs t = 61.02/9.8 = 6.23 s later. Additional ...

Applying Algebraic Thinking to Data
Snoopy is in his plane, 4500 ft above ground. he fires a projectile straight up. The Vo of the projectile is 340 ft/s. (after the projectile is fired, it has no acceleration, so its height can be modeled by a "falling body" model). The Red baron is maintaining a constant ...

You have to know the vertical acceleration, and the time the rocket was ignited.

Science Struggle
Rocket-powered sleds are been used to test the responses of humans to acceleration. Starting from rest, one sled can reach a speed of 533 m/s in 2.45 s and can be brought to a stop again in 2.37 s. Find the acceleration of the sled when braking. Answer in units of m/s^2

A 9.3 kg firework is launched straight up and at its maximum height 45 m it explodes into three parts. Part A (0.5 kg) moves straight down and lands 0.29 seconds after the explosion. Part B (1 kg) moves horizontally to the right and lands 10 meters from Part A. Part C moves to...

physics
First calculate the burnout velocity (Vbo) and altitude (Hbo). Vbo = a*t = 91.9*1.53 = 140.6 m/s Hbo = (a/2)t^2 = 107.6 m The additional distance Hco that the rocket coasts upward can be calculated assuming conservation of energy. g*Hco = Vbo^2/2 Hco = 1008.6 m Hmax = Hbo + ...
