1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rocket moving in space, far from all other objects, has a speed of 3.0 × 103 ms−1 relative to the Earth. Its engines are turned on, and fuel is ejected in a direction opposite to the rocket’s motion at a speed of 5.0 × 103 ms−1 relative to the rocket. What is the speed of the rocket relative to the Earth once the rocket’s mass is reduced to half its mass before ignition? 2. Relevant equations vfuel = v - vex 3. The attempt at a solution Quite unsure as to how to attempt this. How do I found vex in order to find v? It has something to do with the mass but I'm not sure how to relate it. This question is only worth 2 marks so I don't think I'm expected to show much. Thank you.
