## Re: Two stage rocket

Hi Vallery. Nice example. I guess that what you can remark there is that the equation Force = mass x acceleration isn't true!. Newton equation is Force = dp/dt.

Thanks, Alvaro.

## Re: Two stage rocket

Hello Valery,

technically the Soyuz is a two-and-a-half (2 1/2) stages rocket as the four boosters start together with the core stage which continues running after the booster have separated. 🙂

Tanks, Raiko, I Know it. See please - Союз (ракета-носитель) — Википедия

I would like to solve this task with Союз with my students - see Московский лицей 1502. Класс 10-10

Can you help us? With Alvaro and... Isaak!

It is very interesting optimization problem. What is an objective function?!

PS

g=g(h(t), altitude)

Hi Valery. Hope this helps.

Best regards.

## Re: Two stage rocket

Thanks, Alvaro.

But better with units in Prime.

I would like to solve this task 24/10/2015 with my students - see Московский лицей 1502. Класс 10-10

## Re: Two stage rocket

g is a function - not constant:

## Re: Two stage rocket

Valery: your ode is mv'+mg=F, true if m constant. But m=m(t) and vary, so you lost the therm m'. The above mc11 ode, and the attached is the same. Newton's law is F=dp/dt.

Best Regards.

PD: Wau! What's an experience work in prime!. I'm need hollidays after this.
