72. REASONING The magnitudes of the initial ( v 0 = 0 m/s) and final ( v = 805 m/s) velocities are known. In addition, data is given for the mass and the thrust, so that Newton’s second law can be used to determine the acceleration of the probe. Therefore, kinematics Equation 2.4 ( v = v 0 + at ) can be used to determine the time t . SOLUTION Solving Equation 2.4 for the time gives
