The rocket has a mass of 65 Mg including the fuel. Determine the constant rate at which the fuel must be burned so that its thrust gives the rocket a speed or 200 ft/s in 10 s starting from rest. The fuel is expelled from the rocket at a relative speed of 3000 ft/s. Neglect the effects of air resistance and assume that g is constant |
