You need to look at the thrust curves. It's not a linear thrust, the total Newtons is integrated over the total burn time, If you look at the typical thrust curve, there is an initial peak for 10-20% of the burn time, followed by a lower-level sustaining thrust, with various degrees of fall-off. You really have to look at the thrust curves to understand it all - look at the NAR website, or manufacturer's data, etc.

Can someone check my work here.... I pulled most of the conversions from the web..... might have been using some bum math....
```_

```
_1st Stage_ = 5500 lbf which = 24,475 N7.48 sec burnwhich equals 183,073 Ns _2nd Stage_ = 2100 lbf which = 9,345 N13.43 sec burnwhich equals 125,503 Ns
```total 308,576 Ns

Hmmmmmm.....

Metal Glaze by Evercoat.  Spreads as easy as mayo;  sands as
easy as chalk.  Hardens in 20 minutes which is normally a
good thing.  Sticks to everything but the break of day.

Bondo. There's a finishing Bondo that we used on Itsy
Bitsy and I don't remember exactly what it was called,
but it set up quick and sanded great and was awesome.
Anyone from Team Tarantula still around know what I'm

If the holes aren't too big, I've found that wall
spackle from the home improvement store works well and
sands with almost no effort.
