Problem 3PE

(a) At what speed would a 2.00×104 -kg airplane have to fly to have a momentum of 1.60×109 kg · m/s (the same as the ship’s momentum in the problem above)? (b) What is the plane’s momentum when it is taking off at a speed of 60.0 m/s ? (c) If the ship is an aircraft carrier that launches these airplanes with a catapult, discuss the implications of your answer to (b) as it relates to recoil effects of the catapult on the ship.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution In this problem example of an airplane is given now consider the given data and find the speed ,momentum and also read the data and explain the implication as it relates to recoil effect respectively: Step 1 of 6 The momentum of a body is defined as the product of mass and velocity. Here is the momentum, is the mass and is the velocity. Step 2 of 6 (a) Use the above equation, Step 3 of 6 Substitute for , for . Thus, the speed of airplane is .
