A small spaceship whose mass is 1.5x10^3 kg (include-ing an astronaut) is drifting in outer space with negligible gravitational forces acting on it. If the astronaut turns on a 10 kW laser beam, what speed will the ship attain in 1.0 day because of the momentum carried away by the beam?

    Now\[P=\frac{ W }{ t }=\frac{ Fs }{ t }=F\frac{ s }{ t }=Fv\]

    we know work= force* displacement or distaance

    now we know \[F=ma\]

    now another law of motion is \[v=u+at=0+at=at=(10000/1500v) \times 24 \times 60 \times 60\]
