Calculating Delta-v Manually (Science demo in stock 1.1 - pre-release)

Recommended Posts

I know there are Delta-v calculations all over this forum, but I thought I'd make a video on my channel trying to break it right down and demonstrate it. I would love to know what you all think.

Running stock without plugins like Mechjeb and Kerbal Engineer can make it less simple to determine the distance your vessel can travel. These simple calculations show you how to calculate the Delta-v for your rockets stages quickly and easily with this simple formula.

Why do it manually? For the fun of learning, having that deeper understanding on how the math works in rocket science and of course understanding the science/physics principals themselves. Formulas like this are very simple for anyone to do, and are rewarding when trying to get that deeper understanding.

Why would you do it manually when you have so many delta V calculators?

I've updated the post with that answer :) TL;DR - To learn and understand better.
