Best answer

A rocket works on the principle of action and reaction. Hot gases are produced in the rocket due to rapid burning of the fuel that rushes out of a jet at the bottom of the rocket. The gas produced is at a very high speed. An equal and opposite reaction force is acting on the downward, pushing the rocket upward with a great speed.
