A small spaceship whose mass is 1.5x10^3 kg (includeing 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 another law of motion is \[v=u+at=0+at=at=(10000/1500v) \times 24 \times 60 \times 60\]
