Unformatted text preview: Using the given parameters in the figure and taking a control volume that is fixed to the rocket and accelerates with it, what is the time rate of change of momentum (first term in the momentum equation) within the control volume? Is there still an external force, F x , for this control volume? If this rocket were in a vertical orientation, what additional force might you consider on the right hand side of the momentum equation? V(t) M(t) x y P e A e V e ρ e...
