Question

To apply conservation of momentum to describe the motion of a rocket.  A rocket is launched into deep space, where gravity is negligible. In the first second, it ejects 1/160 of its mass as exhaust gas and has an acceleration of 16.0 m/s2.

 

 

What is vg, the speed of the exhaust gas relative to the rocket?
