How to Calculate Propulsion Efficiency?
Propulsion Efficiency calculator uses Propulsion Efficiency = (2*(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed))/(1+(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed)^2) to calculate the Propulsion Efficiency, Propulsion Efficiency formula itself calculates the propulsive efficiency based on the ratio of the effective exhaust velocity to the velocity of the rocket relative to its exhaust, it quantifies how efficiently the propulsion system converts the energy of the propellant into forward thrust, providing valuable insights into the performance of the rocket propulsion system. Propulsion Efficiency is denoted by η_{prop} symbol.
How to calculate Propulsion Efficiency using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Propulsion Efficiency, enter Vehicle Speed (v_{0}) & Exhaust Speed (v_{9}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Propulsion Efficiency calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.019742 = (2*(234/2.31))/(1+(234/2.31)^2).
