Unformatted text preview: Newton, and Daniel Bernoulli. Hofez was teaching us about the basic concepts of satellites and rockets. Satellites certain speed is around seven kilometers per second. If it is less than seven kilometers per second the satellite falls back down to earth and if it is more than seven kilometers per second the satellite goes off into outer space. In rockets, there is a propeller that consists of both solids and liquids that create a chemical reaction combustion. As a student, it is necessary to know the conservation of energy, mass, and momentum for rockets. It is important when designing the nozzle for rockets because it gives the rocket the extra lift that is required to escape the gravity of earth. When the rocket gets its liftoff from earth, it drops empty compartments of fuel so it will be lighter....
