I have recently been studying basic rocket science and I have been trying to figure out by searching online for tutorials on this particular matter and I have not found anything. The problem I am having is I don't know how to calculate how much thrust power I need to reach a certain acceleration.
Let's say I have a rocket. This rocket has a mass of 2,5 kg. It's weight is 24,5 N, I want it to accelerate with a speed of 2 m/s^2.
How do I calculate that, formulas would be appreciated as I don't want cheats, only help.
