It would've been awesome if you learnt some basic physics first. The mass to weight ratio? What the fuck?

Also, if the thrust is insufficient for liftoff, adding fuel is supposed to help? :p

Apparently, but I don't know if in your example the mass to weight ratio goes up or down ;D
Still can't get your air head around mass of fuel to rocket weight ratio I see, numb nuts.  ;)

What is essential for a rocket's liftoff capability is it's thrust to weight ratio, not "mass to weight ratio". Ratio of fuel to rocket weight directly effects the rocket's delta v value which in turn tells you how high you can get with it. You're the one who suggested that to make liftoff possible after adding load, you'd need to add more fuel. Adding fuel only further increases load, adding fuel does not increase thrust and thrust is what you need more of to allow liftoff with increased load. Exception to this would be a solid fuel rocket that can be made more powerful by adding fuel, depending on how fuel is added (practically if the rocket is made longer or thicker, in kiddified terms).

It has now become obvious that you don't care what is true and what is not, clinging to your own ideas is all you care about and so you will not answer any direct questions concerning the gaping holes in your theories to allow actual experimentation to prove them right or wrong so I won't bother to follow this thread any further.

It's simply burning it's fuel at a "constant' rate. It's at "maximum" thrust on take off and that's the way it is, if it wants to achieve altitude. If it was less than max thrust, it would lift off and hover, then crash back down due to imbalance. Believe it, because this is what would happen.
Why? And how do you know?

Why don't you look at some real rocket llaunches and see why they lift off at speed.
Then go and take a look at the so called space rocket launches and ask yourself why they slowly lift off.
I'd love to see your answer on this.  ;)

lol you're an idiot scepti. I especially like how you think you have it all figured out, but you're missing one thing - a basic understanding of acceleration.

You're implying that "real rockets" start off with a high velocity, while those "fake rockets" start off slowly. You don't understand acceleration, because if you did, you wouldn't say this.

It's not that we don't understand what you're saying, it's that what you're saying is preposterous.

Why are you avoding this simple question ?

Liquid fuel rockets have there fuel pumped in, they could just pump less.
Solid fuel rockets could just make the chamber of fuel narrower.
You are not a rocket scientist.

All this will do, is shorten it's vertical air time, nothing else, oh and it will take off a bit faster due to less mass of fuel.
Still can throttle it's thrust, which you said was impossible.

Quote
Quote from: sokarul
Maximum thrust would be required. Once the rocket starts moving by default less thrust is needed.

It's a vertical lift off, you cannot throttle down lol.
Never said it would throttle down on take off.
Quote
Quote from: sokarul
The rocket already accelerated to move from zero velocity. At what point does it stop accelerating?

It's simply burning it's fuel at a "constant' rate. It's at "maximum" thrust on take off and that's the way it is, if it wants to achieve altitude. If it was less than max thrust, it would lift off and hover, then crash back down due to imbalance. Believe it, because this is what would happen.
But since rockets do take off they accelerate. You said rockets can't accelerate, which they clearly do.

Quote
Quote from: sokarul
Rockets usually make thrust in excess so they can accelerate. The space shuttle has to make it to escape velocity.

Escape velocity lol...Stop this fantasy.
Sorry math is too complex. Maybe take up basket weaving.

Everyone is against you.

Obtain a water rocket. Do not put any water in it and pump it up to as high as you can. Launch it and note how high it goes. Now put water in it. Pump it up to some pressure less than the pressure with no water. Launch it. Note how high it goes.
I haven't done this in over 20 years but I still know it goes higher with water in it. Why? Because the more mass it ejects the higher it goes. Simple physics. None of which agrees with what you say.

Making no effort is better than making an effort in the wrong direction. Sceptis explanations to anything make no sense at all, he claims it makes no sense to us because of indoctrination, but it sounds stupid even to flat earthers. Keep in mind that this forum is a joke, its full of trolls yet not one of them dares to argue from sceptis "logic".
So it sounds stupid to RE "indoctrinated masses", it sounds stupid to FE believers ("outside the box" thinkers), and sounds stupid to trolls that like defending irrational stances just for the sake of debate. But some kind of disorder seems to be preventing him from seeing this truth.

If anyone is interested, go and look up "real" rocket launches.
I don't mean space rocket launches YET, just concentrate on ballistic missile launches and stuff like that. Even amateur rocket launches and see the power they take off with.

Once you have done this. Go and take a look at all the supposed huge space rockets lifting off and watch how slowly they ascend into the air.
Of course, people will tell you that they do this because they are huge and have to lift off slowly...I'm telling you right now that every rocket would crash and burn if this happened, because rockets need speed, IMMEDIATELY to gain a flight, because it's the only way they can work, by air friction , high to low pressure, balancing them out.

They are huge, which is why they look like they're lifting off slowly, but in reality, they are accelerating quite rapidly. To verify what I'm saying, look at a real rocket launch and see how long it takes to rocket to cover it's own length from a standstill, then apply the equation:

a = 2d/t2

where d is the distance traveled, t is the time taken, and a is the calculated average acceleration. I know you don't like equations scepti, but as far as they go, this one is really simple, and I've even explained it for you! All you need to do is plug in the numbers.

No. It's not "like" they are lifting off slowly. They are lifting off, slowly and this cannot happen or they would simply fall back to the ground and explode.
They either lift off with immediate velocity or they don't go into the sky, it's as simple as that.
All slow rocket launches are fake, which means all space rockets are fake which should be "blatantly" obvious to anyone who wants to study real against fake launches.

Please clarify what you mean by the bold part.

Also, are you familiar with inertia and acceleration?

For a stable flight it has to immediately spring board with velocity to achieve a balanced vertical flight into the sky.
The only way you could throttle down would be if you wanted it to lift off and immediately tip over, because it's not using the equalised air friction around its body.
Believe that or not, I'm not really bothered. I know supposed space rockets do not and can not work by taking off like they do in videos.
I'm sorry but you are not answering to my questions

Re: Space Flight
« Reply #659 on: July 06, 2013, 06:43:07 AM »
I'm not asking WHY it should spring with "immediate" velocity, but HOW it can do it, because as far as I know, anything here on earth has some inertia. The heavier the object, the more inertia it has.
My second question was how do you know when a launch is real or not, following you definition? . In other terms, how much is the "launch immediate velocity" that makes you believe that a rocket is real or fake?
