What is a Propulsion System

What is propulsion? The word is derived from two Latin words: pro meaning before or forwards and pellere meaning to drive.

Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. A propulsion system is a machine that produces thrust to push an object forward. On airplanes, thrust is usually generated through some application of Newton’s third law of action and reaction. A gas, or working fluid, is accelerated by the engine, and the reaction to this acceleration produces a force on the engine
