## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey,

Suppose you have an enclosed vessel that is full of water. You heat it up then you open a valve, and that will create enough thrust for it to act as a rocket.

How much energy is needed for a steam rocket to get heated enough to achieve a mass flow rate of 2430 Kg/s.

Mass of water= 256 Tons.

total mass of the rocket with the propellant is 282 Tons.
