Deep Space 2 was a spacecraft powered by an engine that gave off xenon partides to change

velocity. It had a mass of 500 kg. Which expression can be used to find the spacecraft's

acceleration if its engine created a net force of 0.10 N?

0.10 N

500 kg

B 500 kg-0.10 N

soo kg

0.10 N

D500 kg = 0.10 N

    a = F/m

    a = 0.10 N/500 Kg

    Explanation:

    Definition:

    The acceleration is rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to time.

    Formula:

    a = Δv/Δt

    a = acceleration

    Δv = change in velocity

    Δt = change in time

    Units:

    The unit of acceleration is m. s⁻².

    Acceleration can also be determine through following formula,

    F = m * a

    a = F/m

    Given dа ta:

    Mass = 500 Kg

    Force = 0.10 N

    Acceleration = ?

    Solution:

    a = F/m

    a = 0.10 Kg. m. s⁻²/500 Kg

    a = 0.0002 m. s⁻²
