Best Answer

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, the force of the rocket's output translates to the forward motion of the rocket.

Newtons second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the force applied to it.

How does newtons second law apply to rockets?

Well newtons second law is f=ma of force=mass*acceleration, so when creating rockets, scientists must take into account all three of these factors. The mass or weight will determine how much friction it generates and therefor the amount of acceleration needed to surpass the friction. So newtons second law has everything to do with rockets.

Does newtons first law apply to bicycling?

yes, newtons first law applies to bicycling because if a force is not applied to the tyres via the pedals or directly, the bicycle will remain at rest.

Example of newtons first law?

How do rockets work relatively to newtons first law?

the rocket pushes on the ground and the force of the fuel igniting pushes the rocket up

What is newtons 2nd law simplified?

a constant force applied to a fixed mass , will result in a constant acceleration

How do rockets fly in outer space where there is no air?

The rockets that have been used carry their one oxygen for the combustion. Or they use a fuel that dosn't need to ignite. These latter propellants rely only on Newtons second law.

How does newtons law help rockets?

Newtons third law states that :For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.Current rockets used on Earth use a liquid propellant which is forced out of the back of the rocket. As it escapes in one direction it creates a force in the opposite direction; in this case against the rocket itself forcing it in the opposite direction. Hopefully upward. Reaction

How is Coulombs law similar to Newtons law of Gravitation?

Coulombs law is similar to Newtons law of Gravitation in that each force has an inverse square relation with the distance between the two bodies interacting. Coulombs law can be applied to the repulsive force of like charges as well, where as gravity is only an attractive force.

How does newtons laws relate to bottle rockets?

Newton's third law of motion is related to bottle rockets. The liquid or gas rushing out the spout makes an action force. The bottle rocket propelling up is a reaction force.

What is an example of newtons 2nd law?

an example would be a empty cart and not a lot of force is applied until you put a lot of things in then there is more force needed to be applied to get it to accelerate

As newtons first law is the part of newtons second law then why you study newtons first law?

Its a matter of being scientifically rigorous. You can not claim the 2nd law as a law unless you first establish the first law.

Newtons third law examples?

You punch a wall but your hand stops. The wall has exerted a force that is equal and opposite to the force you applied to it.

Newtons second law motion?

F=ma. Acceleration of a body is parallel to and proportional to the force applied to it and inversely proportional to its mass.

What is the formula of newtons first law expresson?

F=ma=0 This is 1st Law of inertia. No force , no acceleration. Inertia continues unless force is applied., f=ma.

What is newtons second law of motion?

Acceleration is proportional to the force applied and inversely proportional to the mass

Newtons first law states?

It states that" A body continues to maintain its state of rest or of motion unless some external force is applied."
