A Federation starship (2500000 kg) uses its tractor beam to pull a shuttlecraft (10000) aboard from a distance of 7 km away. The tractor beam exerts a constant force of 25000 N on the shuttlecraft. Both spacecraft are initially at rest. How far does the starship move (in m) as it pulls the shuttlecraft aboard?
