What is the difference between the working of a jet plane and a rocket?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 5th Jun, 2014, 09:16: AM

Expert Answer:

A jet plane sucks oxygen necessary for combustion of fuel from the atmosphere (as it flies within the atmosphere), whereas a rocket has to carry liquid oxygen cylinders with it, along with the fuel cylinder because it generally flies out of the atmosphere.
