Q
Force and Pressure

Question:

A rocket has been fired upwards to launch a satellite in its orbit. Name the two forces acting on the rocket immediately after leaving the launching pad.

Answer:

The two forces acting on the rocket immediately after leaving the launching pad are gravitational force and force of friction.

The force of gravity is the one that acts on the rocket to pull it towards the ground and the other one is the force of friction due to the earth's atmosphere, which opposes its motion.
