A 5000 kg cart carrying a vertical rocket launcher moves to the right at a constant speed of 27.0 m/s along a horizontal track. It launches a 54.8 kg- rocket vertically upward with an initial speed of 33.1 m/s relative to the cart.
A) where will the rocket land, relatively to the cart?
B)How far does the cart move while the rocket is in the air?

  • Physics -

    A) it lands in the cart. think about why.
    B) multiply the time the rocket is in the air by 27 m/s.
    A real rocket accelerates while burning. This a rather phony problem
