Short Paragraph on ‘Rocket’ (100 Words)

Rocket

The ‘Rocket’ is a vehicle or projectile that moves by expelling gases to the rear. It produces a recoil similar to the recoil of the gun being fired. The recoil (thrust) lasts as long as the rocket has the fuel to burn. A rocket consists mainly of two parts; the container of the fuel and the exhaust nozzle for burnt gases. The fuel container’s shape, design, and construction depend to a large extent on the type of fuel used (solid or liquid). Fuels could also be used in gaseous form, but the heavy pressure containers required to make them impracticable for most purposes.
