Question

If a rocket sled shown in figure 4.32 starts with only one rocket burning ,what is the magnitude of its acceleration?Assume that the mass of the system is 2100kg,the thrust T is 2.4×10^4N and the force of friction opposing the motion  is known to be 650N .Why  is the acceleration not one fourth of what it is with all rockets burning?
