# Need help In Rocket Physics (1)

Image

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.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

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.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Use conservation of momentum and a=dv/dt.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

You are totally wrong.

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