A rocket powered hockey puck on frictionless ice slides along the y-axis. The front of the rocket is tilted at an angle from the x-axis. The rocket motor ignities as the puck crosses the origin, exerting a Force(thrust) on the puck.
A. Find algebraic equation y(x) for the pucks trajectory
B. Thrust= 2N.
Mass of rocket/puck togther =1kg
Intial speed is 2.0m/s^2 along the y-axis. Make graph of f(x) at 45 deg. and -45 deg. fromx=0 to 20m
The Attempt at a Solution
A. I get: y(x)=V*(sqrt(2x/a*cos))+xtan
But it is incorrect.
B. at -45 deg, y(8.5) is suppose to equal 0 but my equation doesnt follow this.
