  • Rocket Analysis Essay On Rocket

    Rocket Analysis This project was about building a rocket that was able to launch. We were expected to make a rocket with a nose, wings and the rockets body. We could use all the things able to make our rockets fly. But in the process, we also had some constraints were that I couldn’t make the rocket balance the way I wanted it to. And, the materials needed to keep the wings and nose on were too heavy for the rocket. The design I chose for my rocket was simple, I had to use Styrofoam for the wings and some thick paper for the nose. My design for the nose was a sharp shaped and light.

The first test objective was to decide which nose for the rocket would fly better; a pointed cone nose, or a rounded nose. To test this, the rocket was initially made with a rounded nose; after the other two optimum objectives were filled, the nose was modified into a cone nose to test which was more…
