WATER ROCKET
 Basic Parts of a Water Rocket
 Principle of Rocket Flight
 Construction of a Water Rocket (video)
BASIC PARTS OF A WATER ROCKET
17
a)
Nose cone

b)

Cushioning preserves shape of rocket on impact
Holds water and compressed air
Used for attaching fins to body
Fins

e)
Ballast provides aerodynamic stability during flight
Skirt

d)

Body

c)
Contains Ballast and Cushioning
Ensure accurate flight in desired direction
Nozzle

Releases compressed air and water from body at high velocity
PRINCIPLE OF ROCKET FLIGHT
18

Newton’s famous Third Law of Motion:


FOR EVERY ACTION, THERE IS AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION
In Water Rockets:

Action:

Release of compressed air and water from body
of rocket through nozzle

Reaction:

Rocket propelled forward at high velocity
due to thrust thus produced
