The missile weighs 40 000 lb. The constant thrust provided by the turbojet engine is T = 15 000 lb. Additional thrust is provided by two rocket boosters B. The propellant in each booster is burned at a constant rate of 150 lb/s, with a relative exhaust velocity of 3000 ft/s. If the mass of the propellant lost by the turbojet engine can be neglected, determine the velocity of the missile after the 4-s burn time of the boosters. The initial velocity of the missile is 300 mi/h. |
