If a Saturn V rocket with an Apollo spacecraft attached had a combined mass of 2.8 × 105 kg and reached a speed of 14 km/s, how much kinetic energy would it then have?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possess due to its motion. 

Step 2

Substitute 2.8*10^5 kg for m , 14 kilometer per sec for...
