Need help In Rocket Physics (1)

Fuel is ejected from a rocket of mass $${ M }_{ 0 }$$ at a velocity $$u$$ $$m/s$$ relative to Rocket. Fuel is ejecting at constant rate of $$\mu \quad Kg/s$$. Initial Velocity rocket starts from rest from the surface of earth

( Neglect air and other resistance force in both Cases)

Q1). Assume gravity is constant , Find acceleration, velocity and Thrust as a function of time.

Q2). Assume gravity changes with height $$h$$ from earth surface as $$g\left( h \right) =\frac { g }{ { \left( 1+\frac { h }{ { R }_{ e } } \right) }^{ 2 } }$$, Find acceleration, Velocity and Thrust as a function of time.

Use impulse momentum theoerem in both cases Consider any arbitrary moment in time t and distance y from surface of earth Let us consider that rocket as my system with mass at that point in spacetime as m In time dt let dm mass be ejected absolute velocity of dm is u-v where u is the relative velocity and v is the absolute velocity of rocket at that moment Impulse due to weight is mgdt which is the change in momentum of the system that is rocket After this we form a differentia equation which is dificult to solve in case 2 I am not able to solve the equation In case 1 V= uln(m■\m) -g\p(m■-m) Where m■ is initia mass p is dm\dt

Is acceleration $$\frac{\mu u}{M_{0} -\mu t}$$ ?

How do you find it ?? I don't know the answer.

Use conservation of momentum and a=dv/dt.

You are totally wrong.

We can't apply conservation of momentum as there is gravity and also mass is changing with Time.
