An oil tanker's engines have broken down, and the wind is blowing the tanker straight toward a reef at a constant speed of 1.5 m/s. When the tanker is 500 m from the reef, the wind dies down just as the engineer gets the engines going again. The rudder is stuck, so the only choice is to try to accelerate straight backward away from the reef. The mass of the tanker and cargo is 3.6 x 107 kg, and the engines produce a net horizontal force of 8.0 x 104 N on the tanker. Will the ship hit the reef? If it does, will the oil be safe? The hull can withstand an impact at a speed of 0.2 m/ s or less. You can ignore the retarding force of the water on the tanker's hull.

The astronaut and her spaceship have a total mass of 105 kg, while the mass of the cable is negligible. The mass of the spacecraft is 9.05 x 104 kg.

(a) What force does the cable exert on the astronaut? The cable exerts a force of 80.0 N on the astronaut. (b) Since Fx=max, how can a "massless" (m = 0) cable exert a force?
