The ski boat's jet propulsive system draws water in at point A (at the middle of the bottom of the boat) and expels it at B (at back of boat) at 80ft/s relative to the boat. Assume that the water drawn in enters with no horizontal velocity relative to the surrounding water. The maximum massflowrate of water through the engine is 2.5 slugs/s. Hydrodynamic drag exerts a force on the boat of magnitude 1.5v lb, where v is the boat's velocity in feet per second. Neglecting aerodynamic drag, what is the ski boat's maximum velocity?

Forces on the boat:

There is a propulsive force generated by the engine, which by speeding up the water flowing about it, generates a force due to changes in momentum (Newton's 2nd Law states that a force is generated by changes in momentum and vice versa).

There is also a drag force which opposes the motion created by the engine, and this is proportional to the ...

Solution Summary

This solution provides an explanation regarding maximum velocity, taking into account propulsive force and drag force and using equations to find the final velocity solution.

A ski jump is design to follow the path given by the equations:
x=3.5t^2 and y=20.0+0.120t^4 - 3.00 sqrt(t^4+1) (0 less than or equal to (t) less than or equal to 4.00 s) ( x and y in m, t in s). Find thevelocity and acceleration of a skier when t = 4.00 seconds.

Squaw Valley ski area in California claims that its lifts can move 47900 people per hour. If the average lift carries people about 200 m (vertically) higher, estimate themaximum total power needed. (Assume an average mass per person of 70 kg).

Problem 1: A cannonball is shot from cannon at the edge of a cliff (h=100), as shown in the figure below. The cannonball is shot at an angle θ=30°. Use the coordinate system shown for this problem.
(a) The cannonball reaches a maximum height of y=30m. W

A skier leaves the ramp of a ski jump with a velocity of 11.9 m/s, 17.5?above the horizontal. The slope is inclined at 48.1? and air resistance is negligible. Calculate the distance from the ramp to where the jumper lands.

When Laura was on vacation in the Bahamas, she rented a jetski. She loved it, so when she returned to Tampa she looked at various types of Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Polaris. She spent considerable time evaluating the various alternatives. As she worked through the decision-making process and came closer to a purchase decision, she

Themaximum take-off mass of an Airbus A380 passenger jet is about 600 000 kg. The lift is provided by the wings, which have a total area of 845 m2.
Calculate the following:
A) The approximate take-off velocity of thejet when the lift coefficient of its wings reaches 2.1, stating any assumptions you make in your calculati

Thevelocity v of blood that flows in a blood vessel with radius R and length l at a distance r from the central axis is
v(r)=(P/4(eta)l)(R^2-r^2)
where P is the pressure difference between the ends of the vessel and (eta) is the viscosity of the blood. Find the average velocity (with respect to r) over the interval 0 ≤

Lake Power Sports sells jetskis and other powered recreational equipment. Customers pay 1/3 of the sales price of a jetski when they initially purchase theski, and then pay another 1/3 each year for the next two years. Because Lake has little information about collectibility of these receivables, they use the installment meth
