# INTRODUCTION

Water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel—the engine of the rocket—is usually a used plastic soft drink bottle. The water is forced out by a pressurized gas, typically compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion. The term “aquajet” has been used in parts of Europe in place of the more common “water rocket” and in same places they also referred to as “bottle rockets” (which can be confusing as this term refers to a firework in other places).

2. Repeat step 6 to 7 by using different mass of water. scissors. Use scissors to cut the bottom square off of the cone.5L water bottle. manila folder. 3. 8.How Mass Affect a Landing Distance of a Water Rocket Aim: To investigate the relationship between mass of water and landing distance of water rocket. Tape the three fins on the rocket. Apparatus and material: 1. 7. small plastic cone(athletic). Procedure: 1. duct tape. Problem: How does mass of water affect landing distance of water rocket? Variables: Manipulated variable: Mass of water Responding variable : Landing distance of water rocket Fixed variable Hypothesis: The mass of water increases. 6. Use the athletic cone to make your nose cone. 5. 500g and 750g with other factors remain unchanged. Cut the top and bottom off of water bottle. 4. Inference: When mass of water is 500g. so that the center portion or a cylinder remains. the landing distance of water rocket increases. landing distance of water rocket is the furthest because the amount of water is optimum. then attach it to the launcher. Launch the rocket then record the landing distance of the water rocket. Fill the water bottle with water mass of 250g. : Angle of launching water rocket . Make the fins using manila folder. Cut three triangular shapes out of the folded bottom in the shape. Be sure that the fins are spaced equally around the rocket body.
