An equal, but opposite, force will be exerted on the rocket: 6.0 10 7 N, up . 2. For the momentum p = 4.8 t 2 i 8.0 j 8.9 t k , we find the force from F = d p /dt = 9.6 t i 8.9 k , in SI units . 3. ( a ) p = mv = (0.030 kg)(12 m/s) = 0.36 kg m/s . ( b ) The force, opposite the direction of the velocity, changes the momentum: F = ? p /? t ; 2.0 10 2 N = ( p 2 0.36 kg m/s)/(12 s), which gives p 2 = 0.12 kg m/s . 4. The change in momentum is ? p = p 2 p 1 = mv j mv i = (0.145 kg)(30 m/s) j (0.145 kg)(30 m/s) i = (4.35 kg m/s) i + (4.35 kg m/s) j . 5. The force changes the momentum: F = (26 N) i (12 N/s 2 ) t 2 j = d p /d t . Because F is a variable force, we integrate to find the momentum change: 6. If M is the initial mass of the rocket and m 2 is the mass of the expelled gases, the final mass of the rocket is m 1 = M m 2 . Because the gas is expelled perpendicular to the rocket in the rockets frame, it will still have the initial forward velocity, so the velocity of the rocket in the original direction will not change. We find the ycomponent of the rockets velocity after firing from v 1 = v tan = (120 m/s) tan 23.0 = 50.9 m/s. Using the coordinate system shown, for momentum conservation in the ydirection we have 0 + 0 = m 1 v 1 m 2 v 2 , or ( M m 2 ) v 1 = m 2 v 2 ; (4200 kg m 2 )(50.9 m/s) = m 2 (2200 m/s), which gives m 2 = 95 kg .

To reach the same height on the rebound, the upward motion must be a reversal of the downward motion. Thus the time to rise will be the same, so the total time is t t otal = 2 t 1 = 2(2 h / g ) 1/2 = (8 h / g ) 1/2 . ( b ) We find the speed from v = v + at 1 = 0 + g (2 h / g ) 1/2 = (2 gh ) 1/2 ....
