The issue i am having is that i can't seem to figure out how to apply force from a rocket to a bodies center of mass.
*Edit This is in 2D
e.g. Let's call the body 'ship'
the 'ship' is 1000 (relative unit) and the center of mass is normalized at [0,0] (origin)
the 'ship' has two rockets (lets say for thrust vectoring), one at [-2,-4] (left) and one at [2,-4] (right) relative to the center of mass, and that both had nozzles pointed down (90 degree angle counterclockwise from x)
if the left rocket were to fire at say 500 (relative unit), what formula could i use to find the resulting force and angular force on the center of mass?
I've searched since last night and can't seem to find a formula to do this (atleast not one I can understand, I can't understand complex math notations).
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
I need a formula that gives the resulting force and angular force from a offset rocket on center of mass where the result looks like:
[force x , force y , force angular]
the center of mass is normalized to origin,
and takes the variables:
rocket offset ([x,y]),
rocket angle (in degrees to center of mass),
force of rocket (in relative units)
