Math and Physics are not my strongest suite, but I’m trying to figure something out.
I’m designing a Girandola, Imagine a ring with 4 rocket motors. If each motor produces 12oz of thrust and I set them vertically on the ring, I would expect 48oz of total Vertical Thrust (4x12oz).
But, if I set the motors at a 15 degree angle from vertical, how much of the 48oz of thrust is now going towards Vertical Thrust vs Rotational Thrust?
What is the equation to figure this out?
