Saturn V wieghts
« on: April 22, 2020, 10:55:43 AM »
A few years ago one of the members helped me "develop" a TLI velocity profile and then a launch to LEO for the Saturn V.
He gave me some wonderful numbers that I have since lost.
What I'm looking for is a table to identify the dry weights of the rockets components and the fuel/oxidizer weights of all the stages.
I searched for Apollo by the numbers but only came up with times distances etc., not the weights.  I even have downloaded a few of the Saturn post mission reports but again no weights, just distances  and times.
Anyone have a linked source?

ETA: I should have given Robert Braeunig credit for his help.

What about page 284 of Apollo By The Numbers? Ground Ignition Weights?

What about page 284 of Apollo By The Numbers? Ground Ignition Weights?

In case it matters: If it hasn't been amended on the web page, note that oxidizer and fuel figures are reversed for the S-II stage.

It should read:--

S-II stage, dry         -      88,500 etc. -->
S-II stage, oxidizer  -     793,795 etc. -->
S-II stage, fuel        -     154,907 etc. -->
S-II stage, other      -        1,426 etc. -->
S-II stage, total       -  1,038,628 etc. -->

Thanks I hadn't gotten to the second stage in my project yet.
