A water jet is used to accelerate a cart as shown. The discharge (Q) from the jet is 0.1 m3/s, and thevelocity of the jet (Vj) is 10 m/s. When the water hits the cart, it is deflected normally as shown. The massof the cart (M) is 10 kg. The density of water (r) is 1000 kg/m3. There is no resistance on the cart, and theinitial velocity of the cart is zero. The mass of the water in the jet is much less than the mass of the cart.Derive an equation for the acceleration of the cart as a function of Q, ?, Vc, M, and Vj. Evaluate theacceleration of the cart when the velocity is 5 m/s.
