   # Professional Application (a) 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 2.40 × 10 3 m/s. Assume that the acceleration of gravity is the same as on Earth's surface (9.80 m/s 2 ). (b) Why might it be necessary to limit the acceleration of a rocket? ### College Physics

## Professional Application(a) 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 2.40 × 10 3 m/s. Assume that the acceleration of gravity is the same as on Earth's surface (9.80 m/s2). (b) Why might it be necessary to limit the acceleration of a rocket?

To determine

(a)

The maximum rate at which the rocket can expel gases

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

Mass of rocket m=75000kg

Exhaust velocity vg=2.40×103m/s

Maximum acceleration rate dvdt=8g

Let us consider the maximum expel rate be dmdt

Formula used:

We know the acceleration equation for rocket is given as

dvdt=dm

To determine

(b)

The reason why it is necessary to limit the acceleration of the rocket
