Mass To Engine Power Converter

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm my math on engine power required to liftoff the ground? I will share the google sheets link.

Looks alright but I am no math wise kid need someone to basically proofread it but for math.

I wanted to make it easier for me to calculate how much thrust I would need for liftoff / forward momentum without guessing, I hope this correct I did alot of Google raid researching.

Previous reply was a bit terse and could use additional explanation...

 

9800N will cancel the effect of gravity if aligned in opposing direction to gravity. It will do nothing else. If you want to move anything (additional acceleration), you need multiples of that. How much depends on what you are tryong to achieve. 4X (4g) is probably about minimum, 10g gives most flexibility.

Oh that's easy. Just take your mass in tons, multiply that by 20, and you get the amount of thrust/lift in kN you want in any direction as a minimum baseline to make a great to control ship.
