What net external force is exerted on a 1350-kg artillery shell fired from a battleship if the shell is accelerated at 2.20 ✕ 104 m/s2? (Enter the magnitude.) 


Expert Answer

Step 1

To find:

The mass of the artillery shell is given as 1350 kg and it accelerates 2.2 x 104 m/s2 . We need to find the net external force exerted on the shell.

Step 2

Expression of net external Force on the shell:

We know that,

Step 3

Calculation of the net externa...
