1. Reanalyze one of the scenes from “Eraser” where someone fires a railgun. This time, treat it as an impulse problem to figure out how much force the gun would exert on the shooter when fired.
2. Calculate the force of gravity acting on one of the astronauts from “Armageddon” when standing on the asteroid. You can use the same mass and size of the asteroid as we used in class. Compare that to the force of gravity acting on the same astronaut when standing on Earth.
You will do this week’s assignment on paper and turn it in at the start of class on Wednesday, 4 Oct.
