The Stubobin Rocket Project Report
- Duct Tape
- Hole Punch
- Googly Eyes
- Electrical Tape
- Yellow Construction Paper
- 2 Two Litter Soda Bottles
- A Card Board Box
Then finish the bottle rocket, with the last materials that you need for the rocket.
Rules of this Project
The Body of the rocket must be made from soda bottles (not water or juice) 2-Liter or less in size
Nosecones and fins can be made of cardboard, plastic, styrofoam, or other material
No Metal parts anywhere on the rocket
No commercial or pre-made parachutes allowed
Rockets parts may separate during flight, but must remain attached together
Completed rockets must weigh less than 300 g
All rockets will be launched with the same air pressure: 75 p.s.i.
No supplemental forms of energy for launch will be allowed
- Rockets will be timed from the moment of launch until it hits the ground, falls out of sight, or becomes stuck in a tree, powerline, etc.
Pressure:The continuous physical force exerted on or against an object by something in contact with it.
Launch:Set in motion by pushing force or allowing to roll into water.
Apogee: The highest point in development of something, usually the climax.
Aerodynamic: Of or having a shape that reduces the drag from air moving past.
Center of Gravity: A point from which the weight of a body. It is the same as the center of mass.
Recovery: To return after the normal state the object was in first.
Prototype: The first model of something, like a machine, from which others form or develop another of the same thing.
Stability: The state in which the object is stable.
Construction of the rocket
Performace of the rocket
Rocket launch was somewhat successful. Flight was high and straight. Recovery system deployed, but may not have been ideal. Total time was between 7 and 12 seconds.
Our launch times
Second launch- 7.63
