Continuous Thrust Acceleration Time Calculator

Form to calculate continuous thrust acceleration times in space. That is the time it takes to reach a given velocity at a given acceleration.

Select or enter the desired velocity and acceleration and press calculate.

Note that this calculation does NOT use the relativity formula. So time to achieve a velocity above about 10% of lightspeed will be understating the required time.

Target Velocity kilometres per second  =   percent of light speed

Acceleration:   0.01 G    0.1 G    0.5 G    1 G    2 G    3 G    4 G    5 G    6 G    10 G

   Travel Time = Hours     Distance travelled = thousand kilometres
