*Subject*: Re: [amsat-bb] 400N P3D Rocket*From*: David Rush <ky0dr@xxxxxxxx>*Date*: Wed, 27 Sep 2000 14:16:20 -0500*In-Reply-To*: <5.0.0.25.0.20000927084208.01f40c10@globalnet.hn>

At the risk of embarrasing myself, here's my calculated: 400 N = 400 kg(m/sec*sec) (400 kg*m/(sec*sec)) / (115 kg) = accel rate of (400/115) m/(sec*sec) So, at that rate, how long does it take to reach 100 km/hour = (1000/36) m/sec? I threw the numbers around until the dimensions come out right: ( (1000/36) m/sec) / ( (400/115)*(m/sec*sec) ) = 7.99 seconds. Hold on tight. That's 0-65 in under 8 secs.
