Question: 9.81 m/s^2 in delta V calculations?
Isn't that figure the acceleration due to gravity on Earth at sea level?I'm assuming that the devs used an earth-like parameter for Kerbin, and obviously this math is working for you; but do you use a different acceleration parameter when calculating the delta-V of your Munar return stage? --Hovissimo (talk) 19:45, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
- Isn't that kind of arbitrary, though? Wouldn't Δv = Isp · ln(m0/m1) make more sense?
