(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Rocket with fuel mass of m(initial)

Rocket without fuel is m(final)

Time for fuel to be used up is t(final)

2. Relevant equations

What is m(t) (slope of m vs t graph)

(i assume t(initial) is zero

3. The attempt at a solution

[((m(final) -m(initial)) / t(final)]t + m(initial) for interval 0<t<tf

just mx+b?
