The battleship Missouri played an important role in the battle of the pacific during world war II and was the location of the official Japanese surrender. You may assume that the battleship weights 50000 tons and that the water exerts a drag force of the form F= av^2 where a is a constant. We also know that, to keep the battleship moving at a constant speed of 40ft/s , the propellers must generate a total thrust of 250,000 lbs. a) determine the constant A, where A is a constant with units of lbs*s^2/ft^2 b) If the ship is traveling at 40 ft/s and the propellers are suddenly powered down, how far does it travel before it reaches a speed of 10ft/s
