7G TABLE: Accelerate 100 Days


To effectively accomplish an interstellar resupply mission, an Artificial Intelligent (AI) vessel could use 7G propulsion to quickly intercept the primary 1G vessel.  EXAMPLE:  the 7G vessel needs only 100 days to greatly exceed the 1G vessel cruise velocity. This table describes daily progress throughout a typical 7G acceleration duration planned to stop near the end of the 1G  vessel's 1 year acceleration.

1) FUEL FACTOR: Exhaust flow, ∇
Assume exhaust particle speed is 99% light speed  (.99c).
Thus, ship needs exhaust flow, ∇= 0.2492% ship’s GW
for each day of powered flight (%GW/day),
for 7G acceleration.
2)     FUEL FACTOR: Efficiency Factor, ε
Compensate for inevitable inefficiencies by increasing ∇ by factor,  ε.
Compute daily fuel consumption rate:
ε∇ =0.003394 = .3394% GW/day.
1-ε∇ = 0.9966 = daily Remainder of ship's GW.
