Foam Rocket Experiment

By, Anthony J. Carroll , John . Caples

Problem

How would wind affect the rocket's distance?


Research

Air resistance, often called drag in scientific terms, is the way air affects an airplane or a flying object! Air resistance (Which is what we are testing) is how fast and how far an object will go when facing wind. If wind is behind you, you will go faster and father, but if it's facing you it'll slow you down and you won't go as far.

Procedures

Test Number 1- Shoot the rocket with no wind resistance.

Test Number 2- Shoot the rocket with wind resistance on the lowest setting

Test Number 3- Shoot the rocket with wind resistance on the medium setting

Test Number 4- Shoot the rocket with wind resistance on the highest setting

Conclution

In concultion to our experiment we found that wind resistance plays A big role but it is nearly impossible for us to get a correct test because we could not maintain a steady force on the rocket
