## Delta-V Calculator

*You need a JavaScript-capable browser.*

**Instructions (The Rocket Equation)**

Default values show Apollo Lunar Module (LM) ascent stage masses. Ascent stage full mass was 10 300 lbs and dry 5 100 lbs. The rocket engine's specific impulse was 311 s .. and as computed the ascent stage could produce delta-V about 2.144 km/s .. the specifications for LM show delta-V 2.22 km/s .. so the calculation is correct.

Enter full and dry rocket mass in some of the fields above, then press TAB or click Compute.

**Mass units**are arbitrary; use whatever you like, as long as you're consistent. Similarly,

**Velocity units**are arbitrary; the delta-V computed will be in the same units. Specific impulse is in seconds.
