1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An 8.0Kg rocket is fired and encounters a force of air resistance of 4.9N. If the rocket's engines applied 100N of thrust: A. What is the Net Force on the rocket? B. What is the Rocket's Acceleration? 2. Relevant equations (A) F=MA (B) Is it (Vfinal - Vinitial)/T? 3. The attempt at a solution (A)F=MA F=(8.0KG)(A) = (8.0 x A) The paper tells me its 16.7N (B) I don't know if this is the right equation... but it must be about 2.9 M/S2 to get A above.
