Question: 3 immediately after launch a missiles engine exerts thrust f...

Question details

3. Immediately after launch, a missiles engine exerts thrust F of magnitude 300 kN, as shown in the figure below. The mass of the missile is 8,155 kg. Assume i and j are unit vectors along x and y directions respectively. Grav- ity acts along the negative y direction. Take acceleration due to gravity, g 9.81 m/s2 4 (a) Express F in vector form, having components in the cartesian coordinate frame. (b) Express the weight of the missile W in vector form, having components in the cartesian coordinate frame. (c) Find the resultant force Fnet exerted on the missile in vector form and show its orientation with respect to the r-axis, using a neat diagram
