Jason takes off across level water on his jet-powered skis.

Jason takes off across level water on his jet-powered skis. The combined mass of Jason and his skis is 75 kg (the mass of the fuel is negligible). The skis produce a forward thrust of 200 N and have a coefficient of kinetic friction with water of 0.10. Unfortunately, the skis run out of fuel after only 90 s. What is Jason's top speed? 150 m/s 240 m/s 90 m/s 24 m/s
