🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Fry's class at TAMU.

Solution: A jet plane is flying at a constant altitude. At time t 1 = 0, it has components of velocity vx = 90 m/s, vy = 110 m/s. At time t 2 = 30.0 s, the components are vx = -170 m/s, vy = 40 m/s.(a) Sketch the velocity vectors at t 1 and t2.(b) Calculate the components of the average acceleration, and(c) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the average acceleration.

Problem

A jet plane is flying at a constant altitude. At time t 1 = 0, it has components of velocity vx = 90 m/s, vy = 110 m/s. At time t 2 = 30.0 s, the components are vx = -170 m/s, vy = 40 m/s.
(a) Sketch the velocity vectors at t and t2.
(b) Calculate the components of the average acceleration, and
(c) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the average acceleration.
