With the engines off, a spaceship is coasting at a velocity of +210 m/s through outer space. It fires a rocket straight ahead at an enemy vessel. The mass of the rocket is 1350 kg, and the mass of the spaceship (not including the rocket) is 2.5 106 kg. The firing of the rocket brings the spaceship to a halt. What is the velocity of the rocket?
