KSP math explained for the rest of us

I started playing KSP a few months ago. I tried to understand what everybody was talking about when they mentioned TWR, ISP, Δv, apoapsis, eccentricity, and a whole bunch of other terms from math and physics. The learning curve is high, but this tutorial will try to explain what all these different numbers mean and why they are important for people who do not have a mathematical background.


  • Length: 20-30 minutes
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • For version: Every version

What is the deal with all this math?

Finishing word
