To get a flat, uniform cylindrical satellite spinning at the correct rate, engineers fire four tangential rockets as shown in the figure (Figure 1). Suppose that the satellite has a mass of 4600 kg and a radius of 4.2 m, and that the rockets each add a mass of 250 kg. What is the steady force required of each rocket if the satellite is to reach 26 rpm in 7.0 min, starting from rest?
