How do we propel
the rocket?
One of the crucial
things about making a rocket is establishing how much force the rocket
needs to take off and fly far enough to explode safely. For the rocket
to be propelled, we need to generate a force greater than gravity.
First, we need to
understand velocity
, acceleration
and force.
To find out what the
rocket's velocity is,
this equation is used:
where v
is velocity, s is distance, t is time
Acceleration from a
stationary launch would be as follows:
where a is acceleration,
v is velocity, t is time
The force would then
be:
where F is force, m is
mass, a is acceleration
How far will our rocket travel?
