    impart

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    The final stage of this multiple-rocket will impart roughly fifty per cent of the required velocity to the satellite itself.

    In the case of a rocket, the greatest possible quantity of thermal energy must be imparted to the matter ejected.

    Our only interest in the jet forces concerns the accelerations, both linear and angular, that they impart to the rocket.

    impart = to pass on; transmit

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
