Which of the following types of engines are Jet engines?

Options :
  1. Rotary engines
  2. Turbine engines
  3. External combustion engines
  4. Reaction engines

Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4


A reaction engine is an engine or motor which provides propulsion (thrust) by expelling reaction mass, in accordance with Newton's third law of motion. This law of motion is most commonly paraphrased as: "For every action force there is an equal, but opposite, reaction force". Examples include both jet engines and rocket engines, which are based on a form of aerodynamic propulsion in which the vehicle emits a high-speed stream and more uncommon variations such as Hall effect thrusters, ion drives, mass drivers and nuclear pulse propulsion.

Life is difficult for everyone. We all have stress and we all need someone in our lives that we can lean on. Never think that you cannot talk to someone because they have problems to or that your friend or loved one would be better off without you or your problems. You'll soon find out that they need you just as much as you need them.
