Storyboard Text

  • A rocket accelerating upwards
  • FORCE DIAGRAM
  • Thrust
  •  A Soyuz orbital module in orbit
  • The forces are unbalanced as the rocket is accelerating upwards. The thrust must be larger than the weight and the drag. The resultant forces have an upwards direction.
  • Weight
  • Drag
  • The Soyuz orbital module is in orbit. Even though it's speed may be constant it's velocity is changing as it changing direction. Forces are unbalanced. The only force acting on the module is its weight.
  • Weight
  • A Soyuz re-entry capsule just after the parachute has been released
  • Weight
  • Drag
  • A Soyuz re-entry capsule at rest on the ground
  • The capsule is decelerating so the forces aren't balanced. The drag from the parachute must be larger than the weight of the parachute and the capsule.
  • Reaction force
  • The forces are balanced, as the capsule is not moving. The reaction force acting on the capsule from the ground is equal and opposite to the weight of the capsule.
  • Weight
