Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

New poster here with a problem (No, not a homework, its a tinker problem)

Basically, I've been trying to work out how much thrust would be required to lift 150kg and make it fly around (jetpack hypothetical), assuming that there is zero lift and constant thrust from the engine/s on the person.

Now I've found several ducted fan's, but I haven't found a calculation that would translate their 'Static thrust: 2.7 lbs' into something I could work with.

What I'd really like is a simple, easy to follow explaination on thrust mechanics for dummies :p

Failing that, a link and alittle hint :)

Regards,

Farle.
