How Far Does a Rocket-Powered Hockey Puck Land from the Base of a Table?

In summary, the conversation discusses a problem involving a rocket-powered hockey puck being released from rest on a frictionless table and landing on the ground. The puck has a thrust of 3.0 N and a total mass of 1.0 kg, and is released 4.0 m from the edge of a 2.0 m drop, with the front of the rocket pointed towards the edge. The main issue is finding the distance the puck lands from the base of the table, with the solution requiring the calculation of time and velocity.

[SOLVED] Help please with dynamics 2: MOTION IN A PLANE

A rocket-powered hockey puck has a thrust of 3.0 N and a total mass of 1.0 kg. It is released from rest on a frictionless table, 4.0 m from the edge of a 2.0 m drop. The front of the rocket is pointed directly toward the edge. How far does the puck land from the base of the table?

You have not shown any attempt on your part. Start by finding the time it takes for the puck to hit the ground once it leaves the table.

I already found acceleration for x and y axis, delta T, and delta y but I can't find the velocity on the x-axis once the puck flies off the table. I need the velocity in order to find delta x.

1. What is motion in a plane?

Motion in a plane refers to any movement that occurs in a two-dimensional space, such as a flat surface or a coordinate plane. It involves both horizontal and vertical components of motion.

2. How is motion in a plane different from motion in a straight line?

Motion in a plane involves movement in two dimensions, whereas motion in a straight line only involves one dimension. This means that objects moving in a plane can change direction and velocity in both the horizontal and vertical directions.

3. What are some examples of motion in a plane?

Some examples of motion in a plane include a projectile moving through the air, a car driving along a curved road, and a roller coaster moving on a track with loops and turns.

4. What is the difference between uniform and non-uniform motion in a plane?

Uniform motion in a plane refers to movement at a constant speed in a straight line, while non-uniform motion in a plane involves changing speed or direction. An example of uniform motion in a plane could be a car traveling at a steady speed on a straight highway, while an example of non-uniform motion could be a car making a turn or accelerating/decelerating on a curved road.

5. How is motion in a plane described mathematically?

Motion in a plane can be described using mathematical equations, such as the equations for position, velocity, and acceleration in two dimensions. These equations take into account both horizontal and vertical components of motion and can be used to analyze and predict the motion of objects in a plane.
