When I'm working out the required thrust for a trip to an area if it takes 2 years and requires thrust 4 do I work that out as two trips each requiring thrust 4 and each ion thruster contributes 5 thrust each year? Or do I work it out as each ion thruster providing 10 thrust for the cumulative thrust of two years?
The latter: 2 years x 5 thrust/ion thruster x 1 ion thruster = 10 thrust.
Once I could recite whole episodes of Dexter's Laboratory.
The thrust requirement of the two year trip is 4 in total, not 2 x 4, as I think you are suggesting.
