Problem 5Q

How can a rocket change direction when it is far out in space and essentially in a vacuum?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 5Q:

        We have to determine which law of physics is used for changing the rocket direction in far out space.

Step 1 of 2</p>

Concept:

        Law of conservation of linear momentum: If no external force acts on the system, then the final momentum of the system is equal to the initial momentum of the system. Thus momentum is conserved.

Step 2 of 2
