When a rocket is moving at a constant speed, it has a relativistic mass that is 60 percent greater than its rest mass. Find the speed of the rocket. **** So far, I tried using the relativistic mass equation.. 0.6m = mv / square root 1-(v/c)2

A dog is chasing a cat; the cat's velocity is "v". The dog's velocity is directed towards the cat at all times. The dog maintains a constant speed "v". At the instant when the velocity of the dogs "v" and the cats "v" are perpendicular the distance between them is "x". What's ...

suppose you fire a bullet speed 1600 m/s in a shooting gallery and hear the gong on the target ring .731s later taking the speed of sound to be 330m/s and assuming the bullet travels straight downrange at a constant speed, how far does the bullet travel before hitting the ...

A track of mass 1000 kg travelling on a straight level road accelerates from a speed of 10 m/s to a speed of 30 m/s in 12 seconds. Given that the engine of the track exerts a constant pull of magnitude P N and that there is a constant resistance to motion of 200 N, find the ...

John and Mary are skating at an ice rink. John skates at a constant speed of 6.7 m/s, with respect to the ice surface, directly south. Mary skates at a constant speed of 11.5 m/s in a direction of 34° west of south, with respect to the ice. What are the magnitude and direction...

**physics**

A constant force is exerted for a short time interval on a cart that is initially at rest on an air track. This force gives the cart a certain final speed. Suppose we repeat the experiment but, instead of starting from rest, the cart is already moving with constant speed in ...

The figure shows a girl and a boy each exerting a force to move a crate horizontally a distance of 13 m at a constant speed. The girl’s applied force is 75 N [22° below the horizontal]. The tension in the rope pulled by the boy is 75 N [32° above the horizontal].

A 2.40 kg mass, m, on a frictionless table is moving in a circle with radius 0.500 m at a constant speed. m is attached to a 5.70 kg mass, M, by a cord through a hole in the table. Find the speed with which m must move for M to stay at rest
