Explanation: In an ideal rocket, propellant flow is considered to be steady and constant. In such a vehicle, all kinds of frictional effects and boundary layers are neglected along with the possible discontinuities in flow such as shock waves. The expansion of the working fluid is both steady as well as uniform.
