Hi there
I'm in desperate need for your help!
I need to solve the rocket motion equation numerically in Maple or some other program. I'm having trouble writing the ODs
in the program.
I have derived the rocket motion equation in a single dimension:
I assume that the change of mass is constant and the exhaust velocity is constant. Let's say that the rocket has an initial mass of 1 kg, an empty mass of 0.1 kg and the exhaust velocity 5 m/s.
So, i want to solve the equation numerically in Maple or some other program (Maple is preferred) and find the expression for acceleration as a function of time, velocity as a function of time and the altitude as a function of time.
