Unformatted text preview: um casing had a maximum temperature of 700K, but it had an interal ablative coating to keep its temperature below that of the gas.) This engine operates in space, of course. (a) Estimate the exit Mach number of the engine, and the exit temperature and pressure. (b) Think carefully about how you can apply the integral form of the momentum equation for steady flow to the whole engine (if not the whole lunar module) and use it to estimate the thrust produced by the engine. Compare your answer with the actual rated thrust of this engine (42...
