Main Question or Discussion Point
I was thinking off building a drone and I was just curious about what the amount of thrust we need to be in order to hover based on weight
I'm scratching my head here quite a bit.I was thinking off building a drone and I was just curious about what the amount of thrust we need to be in order to hover based on weight
Sorry if this I said stupid question but I don't know. So is 1 newton of force required to hover 1 gram?I'm scratching my head here quite a bit.
"Thrust" is a force. You know the weight (mg) of the object. Shouldn't the thrust be at least equal to the weight?
Zz.
No, it's 9.8 Newtons per kilogram at Earth's surface.Sorry if this I said stupid question but I don't know. So is 1 newton of force required to hover 1 gram?
No the answer you gave me is what I was looking for I just couldn't find how much it would take to lift 1 gram. I thought it would be around .098 or something like that. But I was wondering if there was a formula so that i just plug in the mass and I get the thrust in newtons.No, it's 9.8 Newtons per kilogram at Earth's surface.
But is this really the question you want to ask or are you really needing to figure out how to generate the thrust?
So then to calculate something hovering would acceleration be 9.8 and mass always kilograms?F=ma
