A Balloon attached to one of the open side of the straw provides a place for air storage that will allow the rocket to move. The straw works as the turbine exhausts in turbo jet engines.
Time Distance Pressure Direction Height of flight
Time (dependent variable): With the use of a stopwatch we took the time that it took the rocket to completely stop moving. Length of the Balloon (independent variable): We measure the length of the balloon before we allowed the air to be released. Length of balloon
There is a direct relationship between the length of the balloon holding the air and the time the straw rocket travels.
From the Graph we can observe that there is almost a linear relationship between the length of the balloon and the time that the straw rocket was in movement. Without any guidance system the rocket does not maintain a constant course that will allows to obtain a exact measurement of the total distance traveled by the rocket.
