I have a space station creating artificial gravity via linear acceleration. how would you use momentum to find the stations fuel consumption?

Im pretty sure the calculations involve energy, but Im not too sure.

You can make up any values that are needed. e.g mass, velocity etc. It just has to show how much fuel is consumed in accelerating the space craft such that I can calculate the cost.

Thankyou!
