Introduction: Objective: The purpose of this experiment is to use model rocket kits to build your own rocket. Then, under the supervision of your professor, launch the rocket and observe the forces acting on it. This lab helps illustrate Newton’s laws. You see Newton’s third law due to the actions of propulsion. Also Newton’s first laws stating that all objects resist a change of motion. Method: We hand built an Estes Wizard 1292 model rocket and we tested in an open field with optimal conditions and recorded the data on flight data sheet. Results: The rocket flew at the correct parabolic path for a duration of 41.9 seconds. Experimental Procedure: After our teacher inspected our rocket, we inserted the engine in and proceeded to the launch field. Once at the field we slid our rocket on to the holding/launch station. We
