Unformatted text preview: more intense. 7. If you shake the rocket too long, it would just probably start reacting faster or not react at all depending on the formula. 8. If you don’t shake the rocket long enough, then it just wouldn’t launch. 9. I used lid down more often because the more I tried with lid up, the more I found out that lid down went higher. This is probably because the baking soda goes up side down then reacts more as it is spreading in the vinegar causing the rocket to go higher. I used various amounts of baking soda ranging from 4.3g to 4.7g. I found out that the ideal amount of baking soda is 4.6g because the rocket went higher than way. I used mostly 5mL of vinegar as it was the ideal amount to react with the baking soda. Our strategy was successful and our highest rocket reached the height of about 10 meters.
