Question

# A satellite in outer space is moving at a constant velocity of 21.1 m/s in the +y direction when one

of its onboard thruster turns on, causing an acceleration of 0.270 m/s2 in the +x direction. The acceleration lasts for 49.0 s, at which point the thruster turns off.

(a)

What is the magnitude of the satellite's velocity when the thruster turns off?

m/s

(b)

What is the direction of the satellite's velocity when the thruster turns off? Give your answer as an angle measured counterclockwise from the +x-axis.

° counterclockwise from the +x-axis

(a) Satellite's velocity when... View the full answer
