An asteroid is spotted moving directly toward the center of Starbase Alpha. The frightened residents fire a missile at the asteriod, which breaks it into two chunks, one with 2.4 times the mass of the other. The chunks both pass the starbase at the same time. If the lighter chunk passes 1800 m...
Given: A massless particle revolving in a circle with a rotational velocity = (2+sin(a))
To Find: Y-axis acceleration
Method #1 (from rotational acceleration)
Y-axis acceleration = (2+sin(a))(cos(a))^2
Method #2 (from Y-axis velocity)
Y-axis acceleration =...
