I have two question i can't figure out and need help.

1. how much force must be applied to accelerate a 10,000 kg space shuttle to counter the Earth's gravitational acceleration of 9.8 m/s2?

2. if your car goes from 0 to 55 miles per hour in 6 seconds, what is your acceleration?

I would be happy to help you with these questions. For the first question, we can use the formula F=ma, where F is the force, m is the mass, and a is the acceleration. In this case, we know the mass of the space shuttle (10,000 kg) and the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s2). Plugging these values into the formula, we get F=10,000 kg x 9.8 m/s2 = 98,000 N. Therefore, a force of 98,000 Newtons must be applied to accelerate the space shuttle to counter the Earth's gravitational acceleration.

For the second question, we can use the formula a=(vf-vi)/t, where a is the acceleration, vf is the final velocity, vi is the initial velocity, and t is the time taken. In this case, we know that the initial velocity is 0 miles per hour, the final velocity is 55 miles per hour, and the time taken is 6 seconds. Converting the units to meters per second, we get vi=0 miles per hour x 0.44704 m/s/mi = 0 m/s and vf=55 miles per hour x 0.44704 m/s/mi = 24.5872 m/s. Plugging these values into the formula, we get a=(24.5872 m/s - 0 m/s)/6 s = 4.09786 m/s2. Therefore, the acceleration of your car is 4.09786 meters per second squared. I hope this helps you understand these concepts better. Remember, if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck with your homework!
