# Calculate Center of Thrust

+3

−0

If I have a rocket with some known number of engines $n$, each producing thrust with arbitrary direction $T_n$ and center of thrust $r_n$, the total thrust amount and direction $T_{total}$ is equal to the sum of all thrust vectors:

$$ T_{total}=\sum_i^nT_n $$

How is the center of thrust calculated from these parameters?
