A rocket was launched and it now has an acceleration of 3m pers second squared upwards.the mass of the rocket is 5000kg.calculate the net force acting on the rocket and the upthrust exerted by the exhaust gases on the rocket.

  • Physics -

    F=ma
    The downward force on the burning gases from the exhaust is equal to the upward force on the rocket

  • Physics -

    F=ma
    =5000x3
    =1500N
