A 93 kg astronaut and a 1700 kg satellite are at rest relative to the space shuttle. The astronaut pushes on the satellite, giving it a....?

speed of 0.12 m/s directly away from the shuttle. Seven-and-a-half seconds later the astronaut comes into contact with the shuttle. What was the initial distance from the shuttle to the astronaut?

Source(s): Women wear headscarves tied at the front to prevent headaches from sky pushing down and to prevent throat cancer. Mega-tsunami for New York will be 400 meters; then engulfed-in-lava Los Angeles will be flooded too; also, asteroid destroys Gulf of Mexico; only Alaska, Eurasia, and Africa remain (obviously without coasts). 1st big earthquake in Russia; 2nd bigger one in China (will be split in half; radiation!); 3rd biggest will be in the USA (Greek Orthodox monk Elidiy from Africa); forgive me.

2.9 m/s x 7.5 s = 16.5 Metres

Since every action delivers an equal and opposite reaction, then:

93kg(v) = 1700kg(0.12m/s)

93kg(v) = 204kg m/s

v = (204kg m/s) / 93kg

v = 2.19 m/s

2.19 m/s x 7.5 s = 16.43 meters
