i need help figuring out what formaula to use for finding the final velocity of a rocket.
Model rocket engines are sized by thrust, thrust duration, and total impulse, among other characteristics. A size C5 model rocket engine has an average thrust of 5.26 N, a fuel mass of 12.7 g, and an initial mass of 25.5 g. The duration of its burn is 1.90 s.
If this engine is placed in a rocket body of mass 57.5 g, and if the rocket is fired in outer space, what is the final velocity of the rocket? Assume the fuel burns at a constant rate.
