Aerospace Do Steam-rockets follow the same calculations of turbines

  1. Aug 12, 2015 #1
    Hello, I'm working on a small steam rocket and I want to calculate how far up it can get by calculating the exhaust velocity of water after it's heated. I saw a similar exercise on my thermodynamics book but for turbines. Can I use the same calculations for the rocket. RuyxQ5g.png
