Here is a section list to help you visit this section:

Gravity Thrust Friction Satellite Liquid Solid Nuclear Misc.

This is a technical section that I will try to keep as basic as possible.

Easy Calculations, Always check your units!!!!

The principals of lift and drag.

Shape factors:

The effects of fluid density.

F = physical property

The Weight = W (Not the mass.)

The mass = m (Not the weight.)

a = acceleration

A = Area

Sf = shape factor

V = velocity from start to finish

t = time, like building this site.

Equilibrium!
