"Calculate the speed acquired by a rocket whose mass varies as it burns up fuel."
Is there any way I could make up a semirealistic problem relating to the above quote and solve it with logarithms?

[tex]F=ma[/tex]
[tex]F=m\frac {dv}{dt}[/tex] [tex]\frac {F}{m} = \frac {dv}{dt}[/tex] [tex]\int \frac {F}{m}dt = \int \frac {dv}{dt}[/tex] [tex]v=\int \frac {F(t)}{m(t)}dt[/tex] Not sure if that answers your question

I'm only in grade 11 and haven't done any calculus. Is there any way to make any sort of problem for this that only includes Logarithms?
