Measuring Model Rocket Acceleration

Physics Teacher Volume 31, Number 1, ISSN 0031-921X


Presents an experiment that measures the acceleration and velocity of a model rocket. Lift-off information is transmitted to a computer that creates a graph of the velocity. Discusses the analysis of the computer-generated data and differences between calculated and experimental velocity and acceleration of several rocket types. (MDH)
