### Acceleration of the plate when the jet first strikes

Assignment Help Physics
##### Reference no: EM13543497

A horizontal 5-cm diameter water jet with a velocity of 18 m/s impinges normally upon a vertical plate of mass 1000 kg. The plate rides on a nearly frictionless track and is initially stationary. When the jet strikes the place, the plate begins to move in the direction of the jet. The water always splatters in the place of the retreating plate. Determine (a) the acceleration of the plate when the jet first strikes in (time = 0), (b) the time it takes for the plate to reach a velocity of 9 m/s, and (c) the plate velocity 20 s after the jet first strikes the plate. For simplicity, assume the velocity of the jet is increased as the cart moves such that the impulse force exerted by the water jet on the plate remains constant
