STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Propulsion Efficiency = (2*(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed))/(1+(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed)^2)
ηprop = (2*(v0/v9))/(1+(v0/v9)^2)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Propulsion Efficiency - Propulsion Efficiency is defined as the ratio of propulsive power to work done on the fluid.
Vehicle Speed - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Vehicle Speed typically refers to an extremely fast pace or velocity, often likened to the speed of a rocket.
Exhaust Speed - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Exhaust Speed represents the velocity of the rocket relative to its exhaust.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Vehicle Speed: 234 Meter per Second --> 234 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Exhaust Speed: 2.31 Meter per Second --> 2.31 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
ηprop = (2*(v0/v9))/(1+(v0/v9)^2) --> (2*(234/2.31))/(1+(234/2.31)^2)
Evaluating ... ...
ηprop = 0.0197416658721736
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.0197416658721736 --> No Conversion Required
0.0197416658721736 0.019742 <-- Propulsion Efficiency

Propulsion Efficiency
Propulsion Efficiency = (2*(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed))/(1+(Vehicle Speed/Exhaust Speed)^2)
Specific Volume at Throat
Specific Volume = Inlet Volume*((Specific Heat Ratio+1)/2)^(1/(Specific Heat Ratio-1))
Specific Temperature at Throat
Specific Temperature = (2*Temperature at Chamber)/(Specific Heat Ratio+1)
