Thrust is a reaction force described quantitatively by Newton’s second and third laws. When a system expels or accelerates mass in one direction, the
Thrust to Power
Thrust is a reaction force described quantitatively by Newton’s second and third laws.
The power needed to generate thrust and the force of the
Wing loading - turning radius
In aerodynamics, wing loading is the total weight of an aircraft divided by the area of its wing. The stalling speed of an aircraft in straight, level
Water Rocket - peak height
A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. Such a rocket is typically made from a used plastic soft drink bottle. The water
Exhaust Gas Velocity
A rocket engine nozzle is a propelling nozzle (usually of the de Laval type) used in a rocket engine to expand and accelerate the combustion gases produced
This formula calculates the duration of propulsion system burn which is required to achieve a desired ΔV.
Gliding flight is heavier-than-air flight without the use of thrust; the term volplaning also refers to this mode of flight in animals. It is employed by
