Problem 25

On a spacecraft, two engines are turned on for 684 s at a moment when the velocity of the craft has x and y components of v0x 5 4370 m/s and v0y 5 6280 m/s. While the engines are fi ring, the craft undergoes a displacement that has components of x 5 4.11 3 106 m and y 5 6.07 3 106 m. Find the x and y components of the crafts acceleration.
