# Thrust

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Thrust or thrust force is a force that moves an object.

## formula

$$F = \frac { \left( m v \right)_2 \;-\; \left( m v \right)_1 } { t_2 \;-\; t_1 }$$

$$F = \frac { \left( m_2 v_2 \right) \;-\; \left( m_1 v_1 \right) } { t_2 \;-\; t_1 }$$

Where:

$$F$$ = thrust

$$m_1$$ = initial mass

$$m_2$$ = final mass

$$v_1$$ = initial velocity

$$v_2$$ = final velocity

$$t_1$$ = initial time

$$t_2$$ = final time
