Derivation of Selected Rocket Equations
Digging through my technical archives recently, I came across the derivation of various rocket related equations that I did some twenty years ago. These step-by-step derivations were performed in order to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals behind these well-known equations. Most are from Sutton's Rocket Propulsion Elements. I decided to scan them and put them on-line, to help others who also would like to gain a better understanding of the development of these important equations. As well, I have included more recent derivations of other important equations.
