It takes between 12 and 13 days. If you disagree, it's because you are not familiar with my new plasma rocket design which employs a Stanley Miyers V1C. What? You don't understand? I guess you don't have an open mind.How many day will It take a plasmas rocket to reach Mars?
After Sir Isaac Neuton? Or maybe fig Neutons? Not to be confused with the nuclear particle with no change, the newtron.Think Neutons, or units of weight (mass?) of thrust.
Depends on the acceleration. R.A. Heinlein worked it out long before PCs. If I recollect correct, it would take 7 days with constant acceleration at 1g.How many day' s will It take a plasmas rocket to reach Mars?
I think your numbers are a bit off, 1G is a heck of a lot of acceleration. I remember seeing a chart many tens of orbits ago that went through that. However, since 1G is 32ft/sec², it is easy nuff to calculate if you know calculus. I used to know it, but it has been too long. Figure 3½ days at 1G, to accelerate, and the same to decelerate, and look at the distance. Of course, this is a major oversimplification since we're talking orbital mechanics, but it gets the idea across. An ion engine would be doing excellent to produce 0.001G of acceleration (and that number is high). However, any acceleration that is continuous and of long duration adds up fast.Depends on the acceleration. R.A. Heinlein worked it out long before PCs. If I recollect correct, it would take 7 days with constant acceleration at 1g. The motive force is, basically immaterial. Plasma rocket, ion rocket, chemical rocket, or Scotty spitting out the back, it doesn't matter, as long as the Δv is 1g. --Rich
