    Using Side Thrusters on a missile to create an angular acceleration

    Assume a rocket is standing on the ground with mass = 1000 kg, and near the top of rocket we apply a force of 100 N for say 1 sec,now assume that this is sufficient to tip rocket over/start tipping over. If the rocket is mid air and accelerating at 30m/s^2, then likewise how much force would be...

    Rocketry Design Team - Rail Exit Velocity Help
