The ﬁgure shows a rocket engine mounted "' P esp
on a stationary test bed. The rocket is fueled l “m
by a long mixture of liquid alcohol and vs
liquid air supplied via a flexible pipe which PM,“
transmits no force and is operated in steady "’2
state. The mass flow rate of the ﬁtelgl) 2 mixture is n‘z. At the exit plane the gas
velocity is V; and the pressure is pg. Note that p313 because the rocket exit is supersonic. a) in terms of the exit area A, and the other speciﬁed quantities, derive an expression for the thrust force exerted by the rocket on its support if the rocket is free standing, and the jet
does not include signiﬁcant air flow around the body. ‘0) Because of noise complaints from neighbors, a silencer is installed around thejet as shown
below. Large amounts of air are drawn by the jet into the silencer tunnel, and there is now a
noticeable wind in the neighborhood of the rocket body. Note— since flow in nozzle is supersonic, the silencer does not affect the exit plane velocity
or pressure. With the silencer installed, the thrust force measured at the rocket base by greater or smaller

K, is to be brought quickly to rest on level ground by tiring a rocket in the direction of
motion. 'iThe rocket burns solid propellant at a mass rate mags / ) and ejects gas at a speed V relative to itself. The total mass of :3 propellant burned during the rocket ﬁring is
small compared with the initial mass M of
the system as a Whole. Neglecting friction between the wheels and the ground, as well as air drag, obtain an expression for
the duration that the rocket must be fired in order to bring the vehicle to rest. For simplicity, assume
that the pressure at the rocket exit is atmosphere (Note: this may not be realistic if the rocket tires at
sonic or supersonic speed). Givens: 1141633 V m 5. (Extra Credit) After its second booster has been ﬁred, a space vehicle ﬁnds Wt)
itself outside the earth’s atmosphere, moving vertically upward at a speed of VD against gravity g. Its total mass at that point is

Show that if the gravitational acceleration remains essentially

but the effect of this finite exit plane pressure on thrust is negligible. ...
