Enter the velocity, change in mass, and change in time into the calculator to determine the thrust force.

## Thrust Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the thrust of force of a rocket.

T = v * (dm/dt)

- Where V is the velocity
- dm is the change in mass
- dt is the change in time

In other words, this equation can be thought of as the velocity times the change in mass flow rate.

## Thrust Definition

Thrust is defined as the total force generated by the exhaust of burning fuel in a rocket.

## Thrust Example

How to calculate thrust?

**First, determine the velocity.**This is the velocity of the rocket itself, not the velocity of the exhaust.

**Next, determine the change in mass.**This is the change in the mass of the rocket.

**Next, determine the time.**Measure the change in time.

**Finally, calculate the thrust.**Using the formula above, calculate the thrust generated.

## FAQ

**What is thrust?**

Thrust is the term used to describe a force generated by the movement of an exhaust, most often involving a rocket.
