A rocket has an initial mass of m and a burn rate of a = ^dm/dt (a) What is the minimum exhaust velocity that will allow the rocket to lift off immediately after firing? Obtain an expression for (b) the burn-out velocity; (c) the time the rocket takes to attain the burn-out velocity ignoring g; and (d) the mass of the rocket as a function of rocket velocity.

Solution:
A rocket has an initial mass of m and a burn rate of a = ^dm/dt (a) What is the
