CP? A 6.50-kg instrument is hanging by a vertical wire inside a spaceship that is blasting off from rest at the earth’s sur-face. This spaceship reaches an altitude of 276 m in 15.0 s with constant acceleration. (a) Draw a free-body diagram for the instrument during this time. Indicate which force is greater. (b) Find the force that the wire exerts on the instrument.
Solution 47P Step 1 of 5: Given data, Mass of the instrument, m = 6.5 kg Distance, s= 276 m Time taken, t= 15 s Vertical component,(Since motion of spaceship is along vertical direction) Initial velocity, u= 0 Acceleration due to gravity, a 1 g = 9.8 m/s 2
