## Homework Statement

A 68.7 kg spacewalking astronaut pushes off a 653.0 kg satellite, exerting a 153.0 N force for the 0.763 s it takes him to straighten his arms. How far apart are the astronaut and the satellite after 9.36 min?

## Homework Equations

d = vit + 1/2 at^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

F = ma

153 = (653 + 68.7) a

a = 0.211 m/s^2

d = 0 = 1/2 (0.211)(561.6)^2

= 33203 m

This is incorrect, what am i doing wrong here?
