Problem 67PE

Problem 67PE

Integrated Concepts Large meteors sometimes strike the Earth, converting most of their kinetic energy into thermal energy. (a) What is the kinetic energy of a 109 kg meteor moving at 25.0 km/s?

(b) If this meteor lands in a deep ocean and 80% of its kinetic energy goes into heating water, how many kilograms of water could it raise by 5.0ºC? (c) Discuss how the energy of the meteor is more likely to be deposited in the ocean and the likely effects of that energy.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 67PE

  1. the kinetic energy is 3.1 x 1017 J
  2. amount of water is 1.19 x 1013 kg
  3. When a large meteor hits the ocean, it causes huge tidal waves, dissipating large amount of its energy in the form of kinetic energy of the water.
