Question

A toy rocket engine is securely fastened to a large puck that can glide with negligible friction over a horizontal surface, taken as the xy plane. The 9.00-kg puck has a velocity of 2.00 î m/s at one instant. Eight seconds later, its velocity is (6 î + 16 ĵ) m/s.

a) Assuming the rocket engine exerts a constant horizontal force, find the components of the force.

b) Find its magnitude.
