Enter the total thrust (N), the distance (m), and the time (s) into the calculator to determine the Power From Thrust.

## Power From Thrust Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Power From Thrust.

P = Th * D / t

• Where P is the Power From Thrust (watts)
• Th is the total thrust (N)
• D is the distance (m)
• t is the time (s)

## How to Calculate Power From Thrust?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Power From Thrust.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the total thrust (N). In this example, the total thrust (N) is determined to be 100 .
2. Next, determine the distance (m). For this problem, the distance (m) is measured to be 40 .
3. Next, determine the time (s). In this case, the time (s) is found to be 30.
4. Finally, calculate the Power From Thrust using the formula above:

P = Th * D / t

Inserting the values from above and solving yields:

P = 100 * 40 / 30 = 133.33 (watts)

Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the formula. For this example problem, these are:

total thrust (N) = 600

distance (m) = 87

time (s) = 75

Enter these given values into the calculator or above yields:

P = 600 * 87 / 75 = 696 (watts)
