Sorry, probably wrong place, but could someone explain to me about "dilution" in respect of jet engines, in relation to fuel and fuel flow??

and neither do most of the punters in here apart from me.

Objection, your Scrubbed honour!

Don't assume anything please! ANd certainly do not try to come across all knowledgable here.
Otherwise , eff off this is JB,
backgrounds are kept secret to protect the innocent.

Mr Scrubbed wouldn't be Jerrichos unitesticulate little friend, would he?

C'mon fellows! I would have thought that a forum called JetBlast would be a very obvious place to post a question about reaction thrust infernal combustion contraptions. There's no need to go all stoichiometric with the poor chap. We could've told him to f*ck off to Ginger Beers and Magicians more politely than that... :uhoh:

I picked up this in Scrubbed's link:
Newton's Third Law, which states: For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. In this case, the action is the expulsion of the hot exhaust gas from the rear of the engine. The reaction is the thrust imparted to the engine thrust that the engine transmits to the rest of the airframe.

Perfect definition of a fart!

Mr cosworth211 was quiet correct in posing his question on this revered forum.
As for the answer............... :rolleyes:

I do hope not.
