I want to calculate how is acceleration changing if I have changing mass, but constant trust i.e. :

T = m*a

a = T / m

(I know it has to be calculus).
Then again I also wan't to be able to calculate displacement and velocities etc..
Trying to find somewhere on the internet a tutorial on equations of motion when the acceleration is varying.. but most of the time I find equations for constant-acceleration.
Do you have a good tutorial ? (don't point me to wikipedia, it is good as reference but not as tutorial)
I would like also to have some simple Exersises, so I can figure out how it is done in general.

thank you
