Which of the following is the better explanation of what drives a rocket forward? (A) The rocket and propellant function as an isolated system. When the propellant leaves the nozzle it has momentum, and the rocket receives an impulse in the direction opposite the exhaust. (B) The exhaust gases push against the air, driving the rocket forward.

E = K + V + U SYSTEM ENVIRONMENT Energy transfer The Basic Energy Model
If the system is isolated, then there is no change in its total energy. We can then write U V K E + + = = 0 This is the law of conservation of energy.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
