## If the acceleration of the projective is: a = c s m/s 2 Where c is a constant that depends on the initial gas pressure behind the projectile

Question

If the acceleration of the projective is: a = c s m/s 2 Where c is a constant that depends on the initial gas pressure behind the projectile. The initial position of the projectile is s=1.5m and the projectile is initially at rest. The projectile accelerates until it reaches the end of the barrel at s=3m. What is the value of the constant c such that the projectile leaves the barrel with a velocity of 200 m/s?

Answer:c = 4,444.44

Explanation:You have the following expression for the acceleration of the projectile:

(1)s: distance to the ground of the projectile

To find the value of the constant c you use the following formula:

(2)vo: initial velocity = 0 m/s

v: final speed = 200 m/s

Δs: distance traveled by the projectile = 3m – 1.5m = 1.5m

You replace the expression

(1)into the expression(2):You do the constant c in the last equation, then you replace the values of v, s and Δs:
