Max also said that the (minimum) temperature of 800-900 °C has to be through the whole of the gas column including the layer touching the walls. You can't pick just the bits you want from the information...
I'm just curious, how would one measure temps at say three different spots in the flame path....i.e. centre, midway and periphery? Has anyone here with a rocket actually been able to do this or is this just theorising to maintain the status quo that "a metal cored rocket is NOT A ROCKET"
I'm just curious.
