Analytical Description of Ascending Motion of Rockets in the Atmosphere
Rodrigues, H.; de Pinho, M. O.; Portes, D., Jr.; Santiago, A.
European Journal of Physics, v30 n1 p185-190 Jan 2009
In continuation of a previous work, we present an analytic study of ascending vertical motion of a rocket subjected to a quadratic drag for the case where the mass-variation law is a linear function of time. We discuss the detailed analytical solution of the model differential equations in closed form. Examples of application are presented and discussed. This paper is intended for undergraduate physics teachers and for graduate students. (Contains 4 figures.)
