I would like to be able to calculate the energy use per second, to maintain a rocket of given mass, at zero velocity, i.e. hovering, at, say, sea level.

2. Relevant equations

I have Thrust = Force times velocity, but can't work out the energy due to the velocity of the rocket equaling zero, leading to zero work, and apparently zero energy, whilst obviously there is considerable use of energy, and thus power.

3. The attempt at a solution
