Plane Trajectory – Dustin S

1. Draw a path of trajectory of your rocket
2. Which force is acting on the rocket at the moment of launch? (use arrows to indicate direction)
3. As the rocket was half-way up, which force(s) is/are acting on the rocket? (use arrows)
4. As the rocket begins to veer into another direction, which force is acting on the rocket? Explain why this is happening.
5. Did some rockets work better than others? How does the shape of the nose and fin effect the trajectory of the rocket? Explain in terms of the four forces that act on a rocket ship.
2. thrust
3. thrust and gravity
4. lift and weight
5. it work better than others. the shape of the nose makes it more aerodynamic and the fins balance the rocket so its fly’s better
