Problem 2.64

In 1865 Jules Verne proposed sending men to the Moon by fi ring a space capsule from a 220-m-long cannon with fi nal speed of 10.97 km/s. What would have been the unrealistically large acceleration experienced by the space travelers during their launch? (A human can stand an acceleration of 15g for a short time.) Compare your answer with the free-fall acceleration, 9.80 m/s2.

Chapter 2: Basic Chemistry and Biochemistry-Part 1 by Mehrnaz Ighani . Chemistry: the basis of all physiological reactions such as movement, digestion, metabolism, and etc. . Chemistry has 2 subdivisions: 1. Basic chemistry 2. Biochemistry . Matter: any object that has mass and occupies space ­ Weight is mass+ the force of gravity . 3 states of matter: 1. Solid: defined shape and volume 2. Liquid: changeable shape but defined volume 3. Gas: changeable shape and volume . Energy: the capacity to do work or put matter into motion ­ Doesn’t have mass, nor does it take up space ­ The greater the work done, the more energy needed . Energy exists in 2 forms: 1. Kinetic energy (energy in action) 2. Potential energy (stored energy)  Energy can be tran
