mi 2. §1.5, #42: Suppoae that a falling hailstone with density 6 = 1 starts from
rest with negligible radius 7" m 0. thereafter its radius is 7‘ = kt (k is a constant)
as it grows by accretion during its fall. Use Newton’s second law — according
to which the net force F(t) acting on a possibly variabie mass m(t) equais the
time rate of change dp/dt of its momentum p = my w to solve the initial value I probiem d gimme» : m(t)g, M0) = 0a where m is the variable mass of the hailstone, v = dy/dt is its velocity, and
the positive yaxis points downward. Then shew that dv/dt = 51/4. Thus the
hailstone falls as though it were under One—fourth the inﬂuence of gravity! We, ﬂairk with ...
