Clearly we would be doing you no favours in just solving them

all for you, so I will do one example and if you have specific

problems with the others you can post the question, what you have

done and what the difficulty is.

*<usual warning about checking the working yourself>*

*<another sugestion-it might be worthwhile converting the units to*

*metres (m), kilograms (kg) and seconds (s)>*

Quote:

2.An airplane of mass 10^5 kg flies in a straight line while ice builds up

on the leading edges of its wings at a constant rate of 30kg/h.

a) At what rate is the planes’s momentum changing if it

is flying at a constant rate of 800 km/h?

(Momentum (p) is the product of an object’s mass and

velocity: p = mv)

b) At what rate is the momentum of the plane changing

at t = 1h if at that instant its velocity is 750 km/h and

is increasing at a rate of 20 km/h/h?

,

so the rate of change of momentum (using the product rule) is:

Part (a) we have the speed is constant:

,

so:

.

We are told: , and ,

plugging these in (and leaving the units as they are):

Part (b) at 1hr we have the mass of the aircraft and ice is , the speed is ,

, and , so:
