Been struggling wih this problem all afternoon.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

On an aircraft carrier, a jet can be catapulted fom 0 to 155 mi/hr in 2.00 sec. If the average force exerted by the catapult is 5.10 * 10^6 Newtons, what is he mass of the jet?

We converted the velocity into meters/second and got 69.276 meters/second

initial velocity = 0

initial X = 0

final X = (initial X) + (velocity of X)(time)

= 0 + 69.276(2.00)

= 138.6 meters

We don't know where to go from here...Summer classes. Test every Friday!!! NEED HELP ASAP!

Thanks
