NAME _DESIGNING AN EXPERIMENT PRE-LAB
Scientists generate hypotheses and design experiments to test their hypotheses.
Your teacher may allow you to do the same thing in a lab. Instead of following an
established procedure given in your lab manual, you wil

Newtons Laws of Motion
When a rocket lifts off it is because thrust
exceeds the weight that keeps it in place.
This reflects Newton's First Law of Motion,
which states that an object at rest will stay at
rest as long as no unbalanced force is applied.
