Looks like unbalanced force because each group of three adds up to -1. But write them out in blocks of the same sequence, just grouped into blocks:

-1 2nd turn.
-1 accelerator.
+2 1st turn.

-2 2nd turn.
-1 accelerator.
+3 1st turn.


Clearly each set of 2nd turn, acceleration, 1st turn produces zero total force. They all cancel out!!!


you are talking about change in momentum which is nothing but the direction the mass is traveling.

I am talking about the forces applied to the pipe.

the process begins with the accelerator.
then the first turn
then the second turn

lets examine the increase in total acceleration of the
pipe as the forces are applied to the pipe , instead of
using the change in momentum of the mass as you do.

to determine if the pipe will move.

+1 accelerator.
-1 1st turn.
+1 2nd turn.

result = +1

+2 accelerator.
-2 1st turn.
+2 2nd turn.

result = +2

total acceleration increase = +3

Im not sure what you hope to accomplish with your constant
usage of CHANGE IN DIRECTION OF THE MASS but you certainly cannot apply
CHANGE IN DIRECTION OF THE MASS as a force that moves the pipe.

Why dont you want to use
the actual forces that apply to the pipe
rather than use the change in momentum of the mass.

Most of what I just said will appear self-contradictory if you consider 'velocity' and 'speed' to be the same thing.


velocity = 5 meters per second = 5 m/s
velocity = 5 miles per hour = 5 miles/hour

speed = 5 meters per second = 5m/s
speed = 5 miles per hour = 5 miles / hour

they are both the distance traveled by the object and the time the object traveled.
