Unformatted text preview: ratios analysis, it is an important topic in engineering. Also, it is interesting to integrate the equations of motion of a rocket (ignoring drag but including a non-contant gravity model) and investigate the eect of various parameters. Sample rocket parameters are given below. Single stage rocket of total mass of 10 , 000 kg Total fuel mass of 9 , 000 kg . Engine: I sp = 300 s , mass ow rate: 75 kg/s . Launch site: Cape Canaveral at longitude of-82 o and latitude of 28 o , sea level. Interesting quantities to observe are the eect of the engine performance ( Isp and msas ow rate) on maximum altitude, and the eect of the ight path angle. 1...
