Question

a test rocket is falling downward at a constant speed (however, it is acceleration in the horizontal direction). it is attached to a parachute with tension 980 N applied at an angle feta=64 degrees.

draw a force acting on the rocket.

where are the x and y components of the tension?

write the net force equations for the x and y directions including accleration.

what is the mass of the rocket?

what is the acceleration of the rocket in the x direction?
