Water bottle rockets questions

1. How did the height you estimated your rocket would reach compare with the actual
estimated height?

it did not reach the hieght that i thoght it ould at all

2. What do you think might have caused any differences in the height you achieved?

if it did not explode on launch it would have gone higher

3. Did your rocket launch straight up? If not, why do you think it veered off course?

it veered off course cause it fell appart when i pulled the string.

4. Do you think that this activity was more rewarding to do alone? Would you have preferred to do it in groups? Why or why not?

i liked doing it it alone cause you get more flexibility

5. Did you adjust your model rocket at all? How? Do you think this helped or hindered
your results?

weightless atmosphere?

it would have not exploded but just have floated

7. What safety measures do you think engineers consider when launching a real rocket?

the launch exauhst and the rocket seal

Consider the location of most launch sites as part of your answer.

do you think the rocket will change in terms of structural design, functionality, and

i think the compartment than will hold people will have to be designated very diffrent.

9. Do you think rocket designs will change a great deal over the next ten years? How?

i think that they will change and that we will find a way to hold many people efficiently

10. What tradeoffs do engineers have to make when considering the space/weight of fuel
vs. the weight of cargo?
