1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://cyclotron.tamu.edu/dhy/sample_exam1_phys218.pdf [Broken] For Number 2 Part a 2. Relevant equations v0 = 1.7 m/s F = ma v = 0m/s v² = v0² + 2aΔx 3. The attempt at a solution Spent like 30 minutes trying to use a constant acceleration kinematics equation, but nothing seemed to work without knowing either the time or the acceleration. Then I remembered that F = ma, and the problem gave me the force (9.8*10^4N) and the mass (3.6*10^7kg). So I solved for a, and got -0.00272 m/s². I plugged this acceleration into v² = v0² + 2aΔx and solved for Δx, and I got 530.82 meters. Is this correct? If not, can anyone help me understand what I did wrong?
