Phys116 Problem Set 6 (Installment #1 and #2) Due: Friday, Oct. 17, 2003 before the start of class. Please write your TA’s name at the top of your solution set. Communicate your reasoning in your solutions, concisely and clearly. Efforts are as important as correct answers. 1. A rocket, with initial mass (including fuel) equal to m 0 , is hovering motionless 100 m above the surface of the earth. The speed of the exhaust gases is u, constant in time. Determine a function M(t) for the time dependence of the mass of the rocket (+ remaining fuel) that will enable the rocket to continue to hover without moving up or down. 2. K&K problem 3.16. Assume that the water has a constant density r (mass per unit volume). 3. K&K, Problem 3.17. The answer clue in K&K is not correct. For W = 10 N, h max = 15.3 m. 4. (From Prof. Veit Elser.) Below is a sketch of an exciting new design for urban locomotion: the rainmobile . The rainmobile is specifically designed for locations with high precipitation rates, ˙ z (a few inches per hour).

### What students are saying

• 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.
