## Rocket can move in air free space , but Jet planes can not . Why ?

Q: Rocket can move in air free space , but Jet planes can not . Why ?

Ans: As you know that rocket is self contained , as both the fuel and the oxygen needed to burn the fuel are available inside the rocket . Therefore , a rocket can move in air free space . A jet plane has fuel only . It needs to take oxygen from the atmosphere to burn the fuel . That is why a jet plane cannot operate in air free space .

## A bullet fired from a gun is more dangerous than an air molecule hitting a person , though both of them have almost same speed . Why ?

Q: A bullet fired from a gun is more dangerous than an air molecule hitting a person , though both of them have almost same speed . Why ?

Ans: As we know that mass of bullet is much greater than the mass of an air molecule . Due to greater mass of bullet and almost same speed of air molecule , the linear momentum of bullet is much larger than the linear momentum of an air molecule . Hence force required to stop a bullet will be much larger than the force required to stop an air molecule . That is why a bullet fired from a gun is more dangerous than an air molecule .
