Expert Answer:

Forces on a rocket in flight

Forces on a rocket in flight, rockets that must travel through the air are usually tall and thin as this shape gives a high ballistic coefficient and minimizes drag losses

The general study of the forces on a rocket or other spacecraft is part of ballistics and is called astrodynamics.

Flying rockets are primarily affected by the following:[91]

as a result of all these forces a net acceleration of the rocket is acquired. specify where is it taken as g??

due to inertia it can rise some distance as it had great speed earlier.
