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 y-axis 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, flair-k with ...
