(c) With this acceleration it would take the sail to reach a speed of 1 km/s. This would be use- ful only in specialized applications. The acceleration could be increased by decreasing the mass of the sail, either by reducing its density or its thickness. Reflect: The calculation assumed the only force is that due to the radiation pressure. The sun would also exert a gravitational force on the sail; both forces are considered in Problem 23.73. 23.26. Set Up: For reflection, The desired path of the ray is sketched in Figure 23.26. Solve: so and Figure 23.26 23.27. Set Up: For reflection, The angles of incidence and reflection at each reflection are shown in Fig- ure 23.27. For the rays to be perpendicular when they cross,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
