The best I had done so far was to find http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/flteqs.html" [Broken] which gives some equations for drag-impeded flight. I ended up using the...
Hi, Filip. Thanks for the reply.
In this particular case, I am attempting to model a crafts horizontal velocity over the surface of a planet (with atmosphere) as it is on a landing approach. I would like to be able to determine the exact (or close enough) time the craft will have to fire its...
