    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...

    Estimation of moment of inertia and CG of model rockets

    Is there any open rocket software which can give moment of inertia and Center of Gravity of rocket system. OpenRocket is able to give CG output but i am not finding moment of inertia data.
