Identify the force that propels a rocket.
Step 1 of 3
Identify the force that propels a rocket. . Thrust is the force that propels a rocket up into space. and it is essentially the result of pressure that is exerted on the wall of the combustion chamber 1)The rocket is propelled by the reaction force of the exhaust gasses bouncing off the air molecules outside the rocket. 2)The rocket is propelled because the action force of the rocket on the exhaust gases is greater than the reaction force of the exhaust gasses on the rocket. 3)The rocket is propelled by the reaction force from the particles accelerated out the rear by an action force from the rocket. 4)The rocket is propelled because the action force of the rocket on the exhaust gases is less than than the reaction force of the exhaust gasses on the rocket.
