You are a pirate working for Dread Pirate Roberts. You are in charge of a cannon that exerts a force 20000 N on a cannon ball while the ball is in the barrel of the cannon. The length of the cannon barrel is 1.88 m and the cannon is aimed at a 44◦ angle from the ground.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
If Dread Pirate Roberts tells you he wants the ball to leave the cannon with speed v0 = 83 m/s, what mass cannon ball must you use?
Answer in units of kg.
