# Thrust

Thrust or thrust force, abbreviated as F, is a force that moves an object. The equation and calculators for determining thrust is shown below.

\(\large{ F = \frac { \left( m v \right)_2 \;-\; \left( m v \right)_1 } { t_2 \;-\; t_1 } }\) \(\large{ F = \frac { \left( m_2 v_2 \right) \;-\; \left( m_1 v_1 \right) } { t_2 \;-\; t_1 } }\) Where: \(\large{ F }\) = thrust \(\large{ m_1 }\) = initial mass \(\large{ m_2 }\) = final mass \(\large{ t_1 }\) = initial time \(\large{ t_2 }\) = final time \(\large{ v_1 }\) = initial velocity \(\large{ v_2 }\) = final velocity |
