I'm 1st grade physics student. I have learnt about units, vectors, kinetics, kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, galileo frames of references: galilean transformation, conservation of energy, conservation of linear momentum and angular momentum, rotational moment (torque) in the last semester. I want to learn about rocket engineering, so I decided to read Rocket Propulsion Elements by Sutton. I took a look at the book and I see in the next chapters the book includes chemistry, thermodynamics, liquid dynamics, thermal protection and transfer and so on.
What should I do? Should I learn the basic concepts like thermodynamics first or get started with the book? What would you do if you were me? And why?
