It is desired to move a small, 50 kg cat in outer space by strapping a lamp, which emits 100 W of blue light to it. If the cat is free in space, and the wavelength of blue light is 470 nm, what would be the acceleration of the cat? (HINT: Consider how many photons are emitted by the lamp per second).
