 Homework Statement:

Halliday Principles of Physics 10th edition
The mass of the rocket is 50 kg, the mass of the fuel is 450 kg
the rocket's maximum v rel=2 km/s
if R=10kg/s, what velocity does the rocket moves when it consumes all its fuel?
solve when the acceleration of the rocket is 20 m/s^2
 Relevant Equations:
 Ma=Rv (R is the ratio which a rocket's loss of its mass and v is the relative speed of the fuel to the rocket)
I tried the second rocket equation
vf = vi + v rel * ln(Mi/Mf)
but it gives out approximately 4900 m/s for the answer
but the answer is 4160 m/s
vf = vi + v rel * ln(Mi/Mf)
but it gives out approximately 4900 m/s for the answer
but the answer is 4160 m/s
