1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An astronaut of mass 65 kg pushes off a satellite of mass 420 kg, exerting a force of 120 N for the 0.94 s they are in contact. 2. Relevant equations What is the speed of the astronaut after they have separated? Ans: 1.84 m/s What is the speed of the satellite after they have separated? Ans: .268 m/s How far apart are they after 1 minute? d=??? m 3. The attempt at a solution This is my attempt. I used the position as a function of time formula: [tex]x = x_0 + v_0 t + (1/2) a t^2[/tex] For the astronaut: x= 0+0+.5(1.84 m/s^2)(60 s)^2= 3312 m For the satelite: x= 0+0+.5(.268 m/s^2)(60)^2= 513 m In order to get the separation, i subtracted the two and got 2799 m. But this is incorrect according to my online homework program. did i make a mistake or use the wrong formula?
