A 3000 kg space probe is moving in a gravity free space at a constant velocity of 300 m/s. To change the direction of space probe, rockets have been fired in a direction perpendicular to the direction of initial motion of the space probe, the rocket firing exerts a thrust of 4000 N for 225 s. The space probe will turn by an angle of (neglect the mass of the rockets fired)
