Space Vehicles The Space Shuttle’s solid rocket boosters are a pair of rockets used during the first 2 min of powered flight. Each booster burns 680 , 400 kg of propellant in 2.5 min. How much propellant does each booster burn in 1 min?

To determine

To determine the amount of propellant each booster burns in 1 minute.

Explanation

Given information: Each booster of the Space Shuttle burns 680,400 kg of propellant in 2.5 min.

Concept used:

A unit rate is a rate in which denominator number is 1. To find the unit rate, divide the number in the numerator by the number in the denominator of the rate.

Calculation:

680,400 kg of propellant in 2.5 min  (Given)

680400 kg 2.5 minutes

To find the unit rate, divide the number in the numerator by the number in the denominator of the rate
