1 T1: Rocket Science To extend our reach to the stars above! Video

2 Introduction Goals: Predict apogees  Rocket equation  Simulation Build/Test Rockets  Different models, masses, engines, etc. Analyze/compare results  Apogee vs. mass  Acceleration vs. mass  Apogee vs. engine type

3 Forces On A Rocket cg cp weight drag lift thrust

4 Rocket Equations Tsiolkovsky Our Theory Newton’s Second Law

5 Rocket Stability

6 Simulation OpenRocket—Sampo Niskanen

7 Computer Rocket Model

8 Results From OpenRocket

9 Construction

10 The Generic E2X

11 The Viking

12 The Alpha

13 Launch: Trajectory

14 Launch: Measurements Angle GunTimersAltimeterVideo Analysis

15 Experimental Problems Malfunctioning batteries Shock-cord snap Rocket explosion Nose cone explosion during descent Rocket with altimeter stuck in tree for 4 days

16 Data: Simulation

17 Data: Mass vs. Apogee

18 Analysis: Mass vs. Apogee Results show Our rockets Can fly Kind of high Exemplifying a negative and nonlinear Trend

19 Data: Mass Vs. Acceleration Video

20 Data: Mass Vs. Acceleration

21 Data: Engine Type vs. Apogee

22 Conclusion Mass vs. apogee → exponential, negative Engine vs. apogee → logarithmic, positive Mass vs. acceleration → cubic polynomial To optimize model rocket flight, rocket mass must be minimized while still maintaining the center of gravity above the center of pressure. Additionally, upgrading the engine class makes the rocket go higher. These graphs present the optimal conditions for highest apogees.
