Problem 27P

Problem 27P

A Federation starship (2.0 × 106 kg) uses its tractor beam to pull a shuttlecraft (2.0 × 104 kg) aboard from a distance of 10 km away. The tractor beam exerts a constant force of 4.0 × 104 N on the shuttlecraft. Both spacecraft are initially at rest. How far does the starship move as it pulls the shuttlecraft aboard?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 27 P:
