The solid fuel of a 300.kg rocket travelling at 1.64x104 km/h is ignited to correct the rocket trajectory in mid-flight to Mars. 10.00 kg of fuel is burnt in 15.00 s. If the exhaust velocity of the fuel, relative to the rocket, is 2.90x103 km/h, what is the acceleration of the rocket (in m/s2) at the start of this burn?
