Select the correct answer about a rocket engine.
A rocket takes off because the reaction force of the ground on the rocket overcomes the weight of the rocket.
Rocket engines are identical to jet engines in aircraft.
The exhaust gases produce a thrust that pushes the rocket upwards.
The oxygen used to burn the rocket fuel comes from the atmosphere.

14.
1 point
Velocity is a measure of the rate:
of change in position.
at which speed increases.
at which distance is covered.
of change in acceleration.

A class is studying Newton’s three laws.
The teacher asks a student wearing rollerblades to face the wall and push against it. The student moves backwards away from the wall. Which is the best explanation for her movement?
She used her feet to push herself away from the wall.
Her action of pushing resulted in a reaction force by the wall, in the opposite direction to her push.
The inertia of the student is responsible for her acceleration.
The push is a force and causes her to accelerate.
