On an aircraft carrier, a jet can be catapulted from 0 to 155 mi/h in 2.00 s. If the average force exerted by the catapult is 5.53×106 N what is the mass of the jet?__________ kg

  • Physics -

    155 mi/h =69.3 m/s

    v=at
    a=v/t=69.3/2=34.65 m/s²
    F=ma
    m=F/a=5.53•10⁶/34.65=1.6•10⁵kg
