Neglect air resistance and determine the kinetic energy of the ball at its highest point. The conservation of mechanical energy states that f 2 2 1 1 f f 0 0 2 2 KE mv mgh mv mgh + = + 12 3 Solving this equation for the final kinetic energy, KE f , yields ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 1 f 0 0 f 2 2 2 1 2 KE 0.0470 kg 52.0 m /s 0.0470 kg 9.80 m /s 0 m 24.6 m 52.2 J mv mg h h = + - = + - = 2) A 4 5.0 10 -kg

Unformatted text preview: space probe is traveling at a speed of 11000 m/s through deep space. Retrorockets are fired along the line of motion to reduce the probes speed. The retrorockets generate a force of 5 4.0 10 N over a distance of 2500 km. What is the final speed of the probe? The work energy theorem, 2 2 1 1 f 2 2 W mv mv =-, gives 2 f 2 W v v m = + where 5 3 12 = cos 180 = (4.0 10 N)(2500 10 m) = 1.0 10 J W Fs- - Now ( 29 ( 29 12 2 3 f 4 2 1.0 10 J 11000 m/s 9 10 m/s 5.0 10 kg v- = + =...
