The longest passanger liner ever built was the Fracnce, at 66,348 tons and 315.5m long.
Suppose its bow passes the edge of a pier at a speed of 2.5m/s while the ship is accelerating uniformly at 0.01m/s^2. At what speed will the stern of the ship pass the pier?
um... i think, a= (v-u) / (T-t)
The Attempt at a Solution
0.01 = (v-2.5) / ((315.5/v)-0)
v= 3.42 m/s
