An armoured vehicle of mass 5000kg is at rest on a frozen lake where friction is practically zero. It fires a shell of mass 10kg with a nuzzle velocity of 800m/s [N]. Let the time take to travel the length of the barrel be "B" seconds. Calculate the acceleration of the shell

Well, if we assume that the shell accelerates uniformly as it travels through the barrel, we can use \[v_f^2 = v_i^2 + 2a\Delta x\] since v_i = 0, we can solve for a: \[a = \frac{v_f^2}{2\Delta x} \] where delta x is the length of the barrel.

so my answer could have the variable x in it and it would still be right

Oh, I'm sorry I misread the question. I should have used the other equation:

Actually it's not even an equation, it's a definition: \[a = \frac{\Delta v}{t} = \frac{v_f}{B} \]

i got an answer of \[800m/s/B\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
does it not give you the time B?
anonymous
  • anonymous
btw how do you do fractions on this thing and no it doesnt
anonymous
  • anonymous
Odd. And the syntax is \frac{ numerator }{ denominator }
anonymous
  • anonymous
inside the \[ braces of course.
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright thanks. so i guess \[\frac{800m/s}{B}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep
anonymous

thanks
