A lunar lander in powered descent at 100 m above the surface of the moon slows down from a velocity of 20 m/s to 0.5 m/s at constant acceleration. I have to assume that the lander has a mass of 20,000 kg and that burning the fuel does not change the mass. i need to answer the following questions.


What is the acceleration of the lander?

How long will it take the lander to change velocity from 20 m/s to 0.5 m/s?

What is the thrust (T) of the engines?
