Re: NASA Thrust Equation gets destroyed.
Forget the rocket, how does the earth's atmosphere stay attached to the surface with no barrier between it and a near perfect vacuum? Gravity does not explain this. What is the barrier, and how do your magic rockets get through it?

Quoting: Zetetic Ben

Gravity does explain it which is why the higher the altitude the thinner the atmosphere. If it was a dome and no gravity, the atmosphere would be uniform density.
Quoting: Remedial_Rebel

That would be explained by density and buoyancy inside a fishbowl. Gravity is still just a theory. Not even your god Neil Degrasse Tyson can explain what it is.

Re: NASA Thrust Equation gets destroyed.
two people, 200 miles apart, see the same object in orbit above them, simultaneously (slightly different azimuths).

Dude, there's only 11,000 or so objects in Earth orbit, nice clear night you might see a couple or few after sunset...some do polar orbits, others more low inclination orbits. Some are living about 100 miles up, others in geosynch around 24k miles out.. it's quite possible you're using one right now.....I am, watching DTV.

believe what you want, it's what you really know that matters.. and without satellites in orbit around Earth, we'd be in the 50s again...no instant internet, news, wireless international calls, real time satellite weather, phone calling China from Colorado...try that with ground systems, pal...had a great conversation with my niece...

I know what's real....you're just "uh-uh"...

London forces actract you to the earth. Almost like the earth is one big molecule and you are part of it. Maybe cohesion or adhesion is a better description.

Currently gravity is unexplained. Einstein described its behavior not its origin. Bending space time is circular logic. E theory makes a good attempt.

He says the combined and reduced formula no longer needed exit velocity for the equation, but velocity is contained in flow rate. Distance/time is contained in the first equation listed in the fluid dynamics group of three. I assume constant velocity, because a venturi was never mentioned. Therefore flow rate is exit velocity in different units times pipe area.

Plus let go of a fire hose to see mass of fluid times velocity does equal force.
Quoting: mechaniac

It doesn’t assume a constant velocity. The velocity changes because of pipe diameter while flow rate stays the same. The velocity in the pipe is equal to exit velocity so the substitution was correct

All that needs to be said is a super hot gas coming out is still a gas, not a liquid. Bernoulli equations do not apply. And a force is still applied in the vacuum analogy, but your body's resistance to the moment of inertia makes it negligible.

That equation they use is originally derived from nazi rocket engineers, you're telling me they couldn't fire rockets? Lolol the amount of ridiculousness using that as the hill to die on is amazing. So much other shit that proves their full of it, why pick something that isn't true?

THE vacuum analogy is flawed.
The external vacuum applies force to the pipe, which is relieved by the vent, which transfers the force to external air, which is then pulled through the pipe.
Close the vent and the pipe collapses.

In a rocket, fuel is burned, creating hot gases which are forced out the rear. The gases exert an equal force in the opposite direction, upon the rocket. [Newton's Third Law]
The internal force applied to the rocket is Thrust.
Applying impulse-momentum theory, derived from Newton's Second Law, the factors that determine thrust can be identified.

This is integration of concepts of Conservation of Linear Momentum and Conservation of Energy.

Go on elaborate this difference. If not your claim is futile. Yes they are different in terms if turbulent and lamenar flow. Gas always has turbulent flow and liquids sometimes has lamenar flow if the pressure gradient is too small and the liquid is not flowing enough to fill the whole pipe. This is because liquid is more dense and doesn’t not always fill the whole container. Bernoulli equation works best for turbulent flow.

It was the vacuum that burst the can. However, at 4:50 you can see the can top was blown off. The pressure pushed off the can top as it was blown off the can. Like firing a gun, yes there is recoil because pressure builds up between the gun and bullet. The pressure pushes the bullet out and in turn pushes the gun. A rocket is like a gun firing a blank. The powder burns and moves out of the barrel only pushing off the air (assuming the gun powder was not encased in anything). Now if the can stayed in one piece and the top stayed attached, the can wouldn’t have moved.&#65279;

There is going to be recoil thrust firing a blank proportional to the mass and velocity of whatever is being expelled by it, in space or not, from conservation of momentum, not pushing off air. The soda and co2 gas have mass just like the can top.
