Rockets: 

Rockets

Question:: 

Question: If there were no launch pad beneath the space shuttle at lift-off, the upward thrust of its engines would be approximately unchanged. approximately half as much. approximately zero.

Observations About Rockets: 

Observations About Rockets Plumes of flame emerge from rockets Rockets can accelerate straight up Rockets can go very fast The flame only touches the ground initially Rockets operate well in empty space Rockets usually fly nose-first

Momentum Conservation: 

Momentum Conservation A rocket’s momentum is initially zero Momentum is redistributed during thrust Ship pushes on fuel; fuel pushes on ship Fuel acquires backward momentum Ship acquires forward momentum Rocket’s total momentum remains zero

Rocket Propulsion: 

Rocket Propulsion Neglecting gravity, then rocket’s total momentum is always zero The momentum of the ship is opposite the momentum of the ejected fuel or, equivalently, the velocity of that fuel and the mass of that fuel

Question:: 

Question: If there were no launch pad beneath the space shuttle at lift-off, the upward thrust of its engines would be approximately unchanged. approximately half as much. approximately zero.

Rocket Engines: 

Rocket Engines Chemical reactions produce hot, high-pressure gas Gas speeds up in nozzle Gas reaches sonic speed in throat of de Laval nozzle Beyond throat, supersonic gas expands to speed up further

Stability and Orientation: 

Stability and Orientation On ground, rocket needs static stability In air, rocket needs aerodynamic stability Center of dynamic pressure behind c.o.m. In space, rocket is a freely rotating object Orientation governed by angular momentum Rocket’s orientation doesn’t affect its travel

Ship’s Ultimate Speed: 

Ship’s Ultimate Speed Increases as ratio of fuel mass to ship mass increases fuel exhaust speed increases If fuel were released with rocket at rest, Because rocket accelerates during thrust, ultimate speed is less than given above

Gravity, Part 1: 

Gravity, Part 1 The earth’s acceleration due to gravity is only constant for small changes in height When the distance between two objects changes substantially, the relationship is:

Gravity, Part 2: 

Gravity, Part 2 An object’s weight is only constant for small changes in height When its height changes significantly, the relationship is:

Gravity, Part 3: 

Gravity, Part 3 Even far above earth, an object has weight Astronauts and satellites have weights weights are somewhat less than normal weights depend on altitude Astronauts and satellites are in free fall

Orbits, Part 1: 

Orbits, Part 1 An object that begins to fall from rest falls directly toward the earth Acceleration and velocity are in the same direction

Orbits, Part 2: 

Orbits, Part 2 An object that has a sideways velocity follows a trajectory called an orbit Orbits can be closed or open, and are ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas

Current Rocket Technology : 

Current Rocket Technology X-Prize Rockets Single State to Orbit Rockets Improbable Dreams Rockets that rarely require refueling Rockets that can land and leave large planets Rockets that can turn on a dime in space

Summary About Rockets: 

Summary About Rockets Rockets are pushed forward by their fuel Total rocket impulse is the product of exhaust speed times exhaust mass Rockets can be stabilized aerodynamical Rockets can be stabilized by thrust alone After engine burn-out, rockets can orbit
