Hello all!

Lately i have been looking at many rocket equations, and i was wondering about the gravity loss on a rocket launch. I found the formula for the gravity loss

where g is of course the gravitational acceleration, and y is the flight path angle, but can somone explane why it looks like this? How has this been deduced?

Thanks
