Alejos 1 Joel Alejos Mr. Rupp Physics 6th 13 November 2018 Water Rocket Project This project was assigned for the purpose of discovering the physics of gravity, velocity, acceleration, force, thrust, drag, as well as Newton’s first, second, and third laws. A rocket was constructed to propel into the sky with compressed air and water. The way that the rocket was constructed will be discussed as well as how the flight went (flight results and description) in addition the physics of the actual rocket itself. The project was built for recording the physics behind gravity, velocity, acceleration, force, thrust, and drag as well as how Newton’s laws came into play in the flight itself. The project supplies were supplied by Mr. Rupp. The supplies included were: a paper body tube, a ping-pong ball, fin material, string, sandpaper, a transition cone and a fin pattern sheet, and two plastic inserts. The following were items that were also required but not included: a plastic soda bottle, a cool melt glue gun and glue, a permanent marker, transparent adhesive tape, scissors, paint, and masking tape. The first step taken to make the rocket was go out and buy a 16-ounce bottle of pepsi which was dumped out immediately once home. The second step taken was to cut out all the necessary parts with scissors. The transition cone was cut out and the fin pattern was cut out and then used to draw outlines on a thin sheet of hard paper supplied by Mr. Rupp. The

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
