Description of Rocket:
Our rocket has three fins set at an angle of 120 degrees between each fin, and a nose cone set up onto of the body. The rocket did work and had a successful launch. Our rocket went up at an angle of 70 degrees. We could have improved our rocket by attaching the recovery device better. Our recovery device detached when the rocket launched. Our rocket launched at 70 degrees.
Explanation of Science:
Phase 1: The rocket is first set off by a launch control which is connected to the ignitor. The rocket will accelerate until it reaches its top speed. This phase is where the rocket accelerates.
Phase 2: The engine inside of the rocket will burn out. Once the engine burns out the rocket is at its maximum speed. The rocket then stops for a brief second and begins to decelerate. This phase is when the rocket stops and then decelerates.
Phase 3: After the parachute ejects it will fully inflate and the rocket will begin to slowly drift to the ground.
Use of Scientific Language: Acceleration is an increase in the rate or speed of something. The rocket accelerated until it reached its top speed. velocity is the speed of something in a given direction. The rocket had a velocity of .55 m/s. Impulse it the increase or decrease of an object's momentum. The impulse of the rocket was when there was a change in momentum at 0m/s.
The triangulation of our rocket ended up at a height of 137.37 meters. The force is strength or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement,and mass of the rocket effects the way it flies.
percent error: Our rocket was supposed to go up at and angle of 90 degrees but instead it went up at an angle of 70 degrees. Our percent error came out to be 22%.
conclusion: In conclusion the purpose of this project is to build a rocket mathematically and tie together many different concepts of physics. Our rocket had a successful launch, along with a successful deceleration. We had many calculations to figure out the mass, force and acceleration rate.
