Question

An astronaut accidentally gets separated out of his small spaceship accelerating in inter-stellar space at a constant acceleration of 10 m/S to the power of 2 end exponent . What is the acceleration of the astronaut at the instant he is outside the spaceship ?

  1. 10 m/S to the power of 2 end exponent    
  2. 9.8 m/S to the power of 2 end exponent    
  3. 0 m/S to the power of 2 end exponent    
  4. could be anything    

The correct answer is: 0 m/S to the power of 2 end exponent


    When the astronaut is outside the spaceship, the net external force (except negligible gravitational force due to spaceship) is zero as he is isolated from all interactions.
