Unformatted text preview: Speed = 100 Left Right #4 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 100 Speed = 100 Correct! #5 Left Right #5 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 1 Speed = 100 Left Right #5 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 1 Speed = 100 Correct! #6 Left Right #6 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 5 Speed = 20 Left Right #6 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 5 Speed = 20 Correct! #7 Left Right #7 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 100 Speed = 10 Left Right #7 Mass = 10 Speed = 10 Mass = 100 Speed = 10 SAME So, how can you determine which rocket will go higher by knowing its initial mass and speed, in the absence of air resistance? Put these three rockets in order from highest to lowest * A B C A Mass 10 Speed 10 B Mass 10 Speed 20 C Mass 20 Speed 10 B highest A and C are tied How would air resistance affect the altitude?...
