Homework Help: Forces Problem

  1. Sep 23, 2007 #1
    At liftoff, a space shuttle with 2.0 x 10^6 kg total mass undergoes an upward acceleration of 0.60g.

    Find the total thrust force developed by its engines?

    What force does the seat exert on a 60-kg astronaut during liftoff?

    Thank you for helping with the problem
