law of conservation of momentum

How do Rockets work?

How do rockets work? As the rocket engines operate, some kind of fuel (liquid or solid) is burnt. The engines continuously eject burned fuel gases. As these exhaust gases have both mass and velocity, they have some momentum as well. By the principle of conservation of momentum, the rocket’s momentum changes by this same amount […]
