Rate of decline of a meteor

  1. Jan 6, 2009 #1
    I wonder if anyone could help me with this. What would be the rate of decline be for a meteor travleing 32,000 mph 39 degrees that weighs 1 million tons and is 80 x 100 m. And if possable what would the force of it's impact be? I am preety bad at math so I need a little help. I'm not sure how difficult this is to figure out, but if anyone has any suggestions or can give me an equation I would be so greatful. Physics rock!
