  1. 2 rockets
    Rocket A:
    m = 1 kg
    a = 1 m/s^2
    in 1 second
    F = m a = 1 N
    distance = 1/2 a t^2 = 1/2 meter
    work done = force * distance = 1 * 1/2 = 1/2 Joule
    power = work /second = 1/2 Watt
    now
    Rocket B
    m = 1 kg
    a = 2 m/s^2
    in 1 second
    F = m a = 2 N
    distance = 1/2 a t^2 = 1/2 * 2 = 1 meter
    work done = force * distance = 2 * 1 = 2 Joules
    power = work /second = 2 Watts
    looks like 4 times the power. Twice the force over twice the distance in a second.
