I already have shown you , bonehead.

the q*ve = a sum
then you add that sum to the
(pe-pa)*Ae

LOL

F = q Ve + (Pe - Pa) Ae

you are leaving out one of the sums.

There are two sources of force that move the pipe


true , ..... it just so happens that you are leaving
one of them out !!!

so when you add them together your answer is incorrect
because one of them is zero.

Quote:
the pressure differential and the expansion of the gas once it leaves the pipe (captured by the nozzle).


Wrong ... the pressure differencial and the expansion are
the (Pe-Pa)*Ae side of the formula...

the two forces are

the mass flow rate * velocity (q*Ve)
+
the expanding gasses (Pe-Pa)*Ae

F = (q*Ve)+(Pe-Pa)*Ae

"you're just too stupid to understand "

you have already stated these previously.

so why did you leave out Momentum , mass * velocity

and why did you leave out half the equation.


perhaps to try and twist around a result?
one that would prove you wrong...
