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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually it's not even an equation, it's a definition: \[a = \frac{\Delta v}{t} = \frac{v_f}{B} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright thanks. so i guess \[\frac{800m/s}{B}\]
