							The initial velocity of the rocket V0 = 0

Velocity of the rocket after exhaustion of the forst stage is

V = μ ln m0 / m

Here,

m0 = 100 + 10 + 800 +90 = 1000 kg

m = 100 + 10 + 90 = 200 Kg

Thus |V| = 2 ln 5

= 2 x 1.609

= 3.218 Km/s

The second stage becomes operative when the first is detached from it.

μ0 = 3.218 Km/s

m0 = 10 + 90 = 100 Kg

m = 10 Kg

Thus, |V| = 3.22 + 2ln (100 /10)

= 3.22 + 2 X (2.3)

= 7.82 X 10^3 m/s
