Calculate the force exerted on a rocket, given that the propelling gases are expelled at a rate of 1500kg/s with a speed of 4*10^4 m/s (at the moment of take off)

I know that force is equal to the mass times the change in velocity over the change in time. Can I use a one second interval for the time and just make up a time like that?
