1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 6600 kg rocket traveling at 3500m/s is moving freely through space on a journey to the moon. The ground controllers find that the rocket has drifted off course and that it must change direction by 8.6 degrees if it is to hit the moon. By radio control, the rocket's engines are fired instantaneously (ie as a single pellet) in a direction perpendicular to that of the rocket's motion. The gases are expelled (ie the pellet) at a speed of 5400m/s (relative to the rocket). What mass of gas must be expelled to make the needed course correction? I'm not really sure where to start with this problem...i assume b/c the velocity of the gases is perpendicular to the rocket, then its relative velocity is its actual velocity?
