** 28. A sounding rocket is carrying its payload through the air. At the instant
shown, it is thrusting with a force of 3 x 10° N at an angle of 37° above the local
horizontal. The vehicle has a total mass of 200,000 kg,
Find the acceleration of the rocket at the instant shown. [Remember: Acceleration
so its weight is 2 x 106 N.
is a vector, so both magnitude and direction must be given.]
