1. A fully loaded Saturn V rocket has a mass of 2.92 x 10^6 kg. Its engines have a thrust of 3.34 x 10^7 N.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a. What is the downward force of gravity on the rocket at blast-off?

b. What is the unbalanced force on the rocket at blast-off?

c. What is the acceleration of the rocket as it leaves the launching pad?

Given:

m = 2.92 x 10^6 kg

F= 3.34 x 10^7 N

Required:

a. F?

b. F?

c. a

Solution:

?

how do you solve this question? Or can someone explain it in more detail. Also, when it says "Its engines have a thrust of 3.34 x 10^7 N" does the value represent the force applied upward?
