As a rocket accelerates upward, its thrust remains constant but its acceleration increases. what is the cause of this?

  • Physics -

    It has lessor mass as it goes upward if it is burning fuel.

  • Physics -

    Also (and this contributes only scantly), the force of gravity is diminished as the rocket moves farther from Earth.
