Question

A 1040 kg artillery shell is fired from a battleship. While it is in the barrel of the gun, it experiences an acceleration of 2.2 × 104 m/s2.

m=1040 kg

a = 2.2 × 104 m/s2

Part (a)  What net force is exerted on the artillery shell before it leaves the barrel of the gun (in Newtons)?

Part (b)  What is the magnitude of the force exerted on the ship by the artillery shell in Newtons?
