I’ve already presented many demonstrations. No in here has sufficiently proven an equal and opposite force from gas movement due to pressure gradient force

By the way. What is the driving force for pressure gradient force. What is the root cause of pressure gradient force.

The first part of your post is false. The second part is very true: you are the only person trying to prove rockets move by some magic power you've invented called pressure gradient force, and you haven't proven it one bit.

Care to explain what drives pressure gradient force. Why there is wind on earth for example. What exactly cause changes in pressure.

That kinetic energy is provided by pressure gradient force, not the rocket

That is dead wrong. The chemical reaction between the fuel and oxidizer creates its own kinetic energy.

So burning fuel, raising the temperature of the gasses doesn’t give kinetic energy?

Temperature is a measure of the average heat or thermal energy of the particles in a substance.

So if a rocket made indestructible material went to the sun where the atmospheric pressure is 5000psi. The rocket can only produce 5000psi of pressure it’s chamber by burning fuel. Is the rocket going to move?

Think about this. As you like to point out, the nozzle and chamber with no reaction are open to outside pressure. The combustion chamber is already at 5000 psi for your scenario before ignition. So, if the reaction of the oxidizer and fuel can take place, its going to convert the stored energy to kinetic energy. So any rise in temperature will create gas molecules with kinetic energy. The thrust may not be enough to overcome the forces of the sun, but it will create thrust.

You said it would move in the sun but that is clearly wrong. The rocket chamber and atmosphere are at equal pressures so there is no movement. So again I ask you, will the rocket move in the sun”s atmosphere and explain why. A demonstration would be nice

No I said the combustion of fuel only creates 5000psi pressure. The rocket chamber cannot exceed 5000psi.

You premises is wrong. The pressure is going to be equal with no reaction. You create a reaction the results in the release of expanding gasses and rising temperatures which increases the kinetic energy of the gasses inside the rocket, the gasses are going to expand, the gas molecules are going to collide with the rocket walls. They are going to flow out the nozzle and create thrust.

And if you use a “fuel” that releases stored chemical energy into kinetic energy such as a rise in temperature and expanding gasses, the pressure of the chamber will increase to create thrust.

What do you not get this. The combustion chamber is open to the outside 5000 psi. The combustion chamber does not have to do any “work” to achieve 5000 PSI. It will equalize with the outside pressure with no rocket fuel reaction. As long as the rocket fuel can react with an oxidizer, the reaction it going to raise the combustion chamber pressure above outlet pressure as long as the restriction of the outlet nozzle is correctly designed for the application.

The rocket fuel reaction releases stored chemical energy, and results in expanding gasses high in temperature and kinetic energy. The rocket fuel reaction is what cause the expanding gasses to have kinetic energy, not pressure gradient force.

Rocket propellant

en.m.wikipedia.org...

Rocket propellant is either a high oxygen-containing fuel or a mixture of fuel plus oxidant, whose combustion takes place, in a definite and controlled manner with the evolution of a huge volume of gas. In the rocket engine, the propellant is burnt in the combustion chamber and the hot jet of gases (usually at a temperature of 3,000°C and a pressure of 300 kg/cm^2 ) escapes through the nozzle at very high velocity. Rockets create thrust by expelling mass backward in a high-speed jet (see Newton's Third Law). Chemical rockets, the subject of this article, create thrust by reacting propellants within a combustion chamber into a very hot gas at high pressure, which is then expanded and accelerated by passage through a nozzle at the rear of the rocket. The amount of the resulting forward force, known as thrust, that is produced is the mass flow rate of the propellants multiplied by their exhaust velocity (relative to the rocket), as specified by Newton's third law of motion.

If the reaction between the fuel and oxidizer can take place, it going to create pressure because it results in gasses with kinetic energy.

If the reaction continues in a bottled up system, or happens is an area not designed for the reaction, the expanding gasses will build until something gives.

This is what you don’t understand about pressure and pressure gradient force. Temperature is the measurement of kinetic energy.

TEMPERATURE IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS

www.wired.com...

Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object.

Without an energy source, there is no pressure gradient force.

Winds and the Pressure Gradient Force

www.thoughtco.com...

The Pressure Gradient Force and Other Effects on Wind
Within the atmosphere, there are several forces that impact the speed and direction of winds. The most important though is the Earth’s gravitational force. As gravity compresses the Earth’s atmosphere, it creates air pressure- the driving force of wind. Without gravity, there would be no atmosphere or air pressure and thus, no wind.

The force actually responsible for causing the movement of air though is the pressure gradient force. Differences in air pressure and the pressure gradient force are caused by the unequal heating of the Earth’s surface when incoming solar radiation concentrates at the equator. Because of the energy surplus at low latitudes for example, the air there is warmer than that at the poles. Warm air is less dense and has a lower barometric pressure than the cold air at high latitudes. These differences in barometric pressure are what create the pressure gradient force and wind as air constantly moves between areas of high and low pressure.

If you missed it, “Differences in air pressure and the pressure gradient force are caused by the unequal heating of the Earth’s surface”

Like gravity and heating drives winds, the releasing of stored chemical energy of a fuel to cause the expansion of hot gasses with resultant gas molecules with kinetic energy drives the thrust of a rocket. In a crude analogy, rockets make their own wind with expanding gasses from burning fuel.

Pressure is simply potential energy. Like climbing a mountain gives gravitational potential energy. The combustion reaction provide the energy to create pressure. The pressure is then released. Just like when you release a ball from the mountain top, no opposite reaction in your hand. When pressure releases to vacuum, no force in the rocket

What the F drives pressure.

What do you not get about temperature is the average kinetic energy of a substance. Rocket fuel burns. Creates lots of heat. The heat is indicative of the kinetic energy the burning of the fuel gave to the the exhaust gasses. The heat results in giving the exhaust gasses kinetic energy that gives the gases molecules energy to move and create pressure.
