Does anyone know how to calculate the vertical thrust of 1.5 horsepower motor? I need some calculations for a project hovercraft and am wondering how much thrust is needed to lift 200 lbs. Also is thrust affected by fan blade size? Any help is appreciated, Thanks!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
