Problem 53PE

Professional Application Antiballistic missiles (ABMs) are designed to have very large accelerations so that they may intercept fast-moving incoming missiles in the short time available. What is the takeoff acceleration of a 10,000-kg ABM that expels 196 kg of gas per second at an exhaust velocity of 2.50×103 m/s?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution In this problem we have to calculate the takeoff acceleration of a Antiballistic missiles using the given data respectivey. Step 1 of 2 The equation for the acceleration of a rocket is given by, Here, is the exhaust velocity, is the mass, is the change in mass per second, is the gravitational acceleration.

Step 2 of 2
