Question

Asked Oct 24, 2019

Calculate the maximum rate at which a rocket can expel gases if its acceleration cannot exceed seven times that of gravity. The mass of the rocket just as it runs out of fuel is 75,000 kg, and its exhaust velocity is 2.40x10^{3} m/s. Assume that the acceleration of gravity is the same as on Earth's surface.

Group of answer choices

2450 kg/s

2560 kg/s

2670 kg/s

2780 kg/s

Step 1

**Given:**

Mass of the rocket = 75000 kg

Exaust velocity of the rocket = 2400 m/s

Maximum acceleration of the rocket = 7g

Step 2

Calculating the maximum rate at which ...
