v (t) = ─ve In [1─(t/Tp)]

(b) Make a graph of the velocity of the rocket as a function of time for times running from 0 to 132 s.

(c) Show that the acceleration of the rocket is a(t) = ve /(Tp ─ t)

(d) Graph the acceleration as a function of time.

(e) Show that the position of the rocket is x(t) = ve(Tp ─ t)ln [1 ─ (t/Tp)] + ve t

(f) Graph the position during the burn.
