3 Exam 3: Hardest problem, 39% A rocket is at rest (not moving) in outer space far away from any massive objects, i.e. the external net force on the rocket is negligible. The rocket turns on its engine throwing out burning gases of rocket fuel to the left, while accelerating the right. Consider a system consisting of the rocket, fuel and burning gases, and describe the direction of motion of the center of mass of this system. 39% A) The center of mass will not move 12% B) The center of mass will accelerate to the right at the same rate as the rocket itself 44% C) The center of mass will accelerate to the right at rate that is smaller than that of rocket 3% D) The center of mass will accelerate to the left 1% E) The answer depends on the chemical energy released during burning , CM net ext dP F dt = ° ° What will be the velocity of the center of mass v cm ?

    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.
