Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Am wondering how to calculate the thrust and impulse thrust for gas escaping a pressure bottle - ie a scuba tank or the like. My maths is a lil shady so go easy on integration and such.

Like say if I wanted 1MJ of energy output - what size bottle at what pressure with what nozzle diameter would be required.

Thanks in advance

Ben
