Textbook Problem

This problem gives some idea of the magnitude of the energy yield of a small tactical bomb. Assume that half the energy of a 1.00−kT nuclear depth charge set off under an aircraft carrier goes into lifting it out of the water—that is, into gravitational potential energy. How high is the carrier lifted if its mass is 90,000 tons?

To determine

How high is the carrier lifted if its mass is 90,000 tons assume that half the energy of a 1.00-kT nuclear depth charge set off under an aircraft carrier goes into lifting it out of the water that is, into gravitational potential energy?

Explanation

Given info:

  E=1kTm=90000tons=9×107kg

Formula used:

Energy,

  E=mc2

  1kT=4.2×1012J

  Potential energy
