Unformatted text preview: 2 . Take the density of air at sea level to be 1.21 kg/m 3 . Plot the height and speed as a function of time, to the point where the rocket has consumed all of its propellant. Compare this to the case of no air resistance. Bonus: If you are really daring – try extending the problem to model the case of a “staged” launch. That is – dump one half of the rocket’s dry mass (50 kg) after the rocket has consumed half of its propellant. What velocity do you reach at the point of propellant consumption? We will work on the Matlab background material to do this problem, in the recitations.
