Unformatted text preview: nits! Some conversion is required to get [m/s]. 5. Compute and print vhor, the horizontal velocity imparted by the cannon, using this solution to Equation (7): (11) = 6. Compute and print θ, the angle of inclination of the cannon, from the formula (12) = arctan 7. Compute and print t, the time spent in the cannon, from the solution to Equation (9): (13) = COMP 1012 Winter 2014 Assignment 1 Page 5 of 11 8. Compute and print a, the constant acceleration along a 2 km long cannon. From Equation (9), (14) = 9. Using the rule of thumb that a human body can tolerate 150 [m/s2] accelerations for brief periods, print out a statement, either “You can put a person in this capsule.” or “You cannot put a person in this capsule.” depending on the level of acceleration. Do not use an if statement. Sample Output: Match this as closely as possible (the Xs are hidden digits) SPACE CANNON CONSTANTS Conversion: 1 km = 1000 m Conversion: 1 day = 24 hours Conversion: 1 hour = 60 minutes Conversion: 1 minute = 60 seconds Conversion: 1 radian = 57.2XXX degrees Acceleration: human limit = 150 m/s^2 Gravitation: G = 6.6XXe- 11 Newton (m/kg)^2 Cannon: length = 2000 m Earth: radius at equator = 63XX.X km Earth: mass = 5.9XXXe+24 kg Orbit: height = 200 km Orbit: radius = 65XX.X km VELOCITY CALCULATIONS Velocity of equator: 1XXX [km/hr] 4XX [m/s] Vertical velocity: 1XXX [m/s] H...
